Welcome to the Clean Diesel Learning Center

DTF will host a Clean Diesel Learning Center as a unique hands on experience to see innovations that will help save fuel, reduce greenhouse gas emissions and generate air quality benefits.


If you live and work in the Sacramento area or happen to be in Sacramento on Thursday, September 22nd please come on by the Clean Diesel Learning Center at the Doubletree Hotel. An impressive array of the latest innovations in clean diesel technology that will deliver cleaner air, lower greenhouse gas emissions and fuel savings will be on display. You will see the first plug-in hybrid Class 8 truck, a bulldozer with a diesel-electric powertrain, pickups you’ll want to drive, agricultural equipment that can be operated by a tablet, a locomotive engine that can reduce emissions by more than 90 percent as well as many other technologies.

We have chosen to display this technology in Sacramento as California policymakers continue to drive climate change, energy savings and clean air policies. This equipment on display will contribute to California’s many policy priorities. Executives and product experts will be on hand to talk about technology and provide you with hands on understanding of how these innovations will help save fuel, reduce greenhouse gas emissions and generate air quality benefits.

As more customers throughout California adopt the latest clean diesel innovations, one of the greatest beneficiaries will be residents in disadvantaged communities. Today, California is home to the second oldest commercial vehicle fleet in the country. Eight-two percent of these vehicles in operation in California do not come with the latest fuel savings and near-zero emissions technology.  According to CalEnviroScreen there is a correlation between disadvantaged communities and the routes commercial vehicles operate. Rejuvenating the fleet with the latest clean diesel technology on display at the Clean Diesel Learning Center will provide lasting benefits for all Californians.

We hope you can make it! The Clean Diesel Learning Center hours are Thursday, Sept. 22, from 12:00 - 9:00pm and Friday, Sept. 23, from 7:30am - 2:00pm.
