Upgrading Big Engines Brings Big Clean Air Benefits, Fast

New Clean Diesel Engines for Ferries, Tugs and Switch Locomotives Generate Substantial Clean Air Benefits

The $2.7 billion Environmental Mitigation Trust included in the VW settlement provides funding for states to upgrade or repower older vehicles and equipment to rapidly reduce emissions of oxides of nitrogen (NOx) that contribute to ground level ozone, or smog. The emission reductions from replacing just one of the oldest engines that powers some of the largest diesel equipment is equivalent to converting hundreds of thousands of passenger vehicles to a zero emission option. States are gearing up now to decide how to invest their Trust revenue and while charging infrastructure is on the planning books and consumers wait to make the investment in an EV, clean diesel is ready today to deliver immediate air quality benefits.
