Minnesota will receive $47 million from the VW Mitigation Trust revenue specifically for the purpose of reducing NOx emissions.

Washington, D.C. – As individual states around the U.S. move forward with plans on how to invest their share of the $2.9 billion Environmental Mitigation Trust included in the VW settlement, the Diesel Technology Forum will host a series of webinars with engine and vehicle industry leaders to discuss the best investments to achieve better air quality as required under the settlement.
The Environmental Mitigation Trust included in the VW settlement represents an upcoming and historic opportunity for New York and New Jersey to help improve air quality. The Empire State will receive $128 million and the Garden State will receive $72 million in Trust revenue for the upgrading or replacement of older commercial vehicles and off-road equipment specifically for the purpose of reducing NOx emissions.
How can these dollars best be used? Switching to electric vehicles? Targeting the oldest or the largest sources of emissions? Marine and locomotives or commercial trucks? What actually is the population of commercial trucks in New York and New Jersey?
Please join us for a free webinar on June 7th at 11 a.m. ET to learn more about the VW Environmental Mitigation Trust and which strategies and technology choices maximize the clean air benefits from the Trust.
Diesel Technology Forum representatives will present recent research summarizing cost effective technology solutions to meet the NOx mitigation goals of the Environmental Mitigation Trust. Engine, vehicle and equipment manufacturers will be on hand to answer questions regarding the technology availability and readiness.
DATE: June 7, 2017 | 11:00 am – Noon ET
There is no cost for the webinar but space is limited. Register for the webinar here.
