Making the Most of the VW Settlement in California: More Clean Air for the Dollar

Learn how to maximize the clean air benefits from the VW Environmental Mitigation Trust with clean diesel engines, and the vehicles and equipment they power.


The Environmental Mitigation Trust included in the VW settlement represents an historic opportunity for California to help improve regional air quality. The Golden State is set to become the largest beneficiary of the Environmental Mitigation Trust established in the settlement and will receive $423 million to upgrade or replace 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 California and the surrounding region?

What are the best options for reducing NOx emissions in the region, and which technologies deliver the largest reductions on a dollar per pound basis?

Our webinar discussed the VW Environmental Mitigation Trust and which strategies and technology choices maximize the clean air benefits from the Trust.

Diesel Technology Forum representatives presented recent research summarizing cost effective technology solutions to meet the NOx mitigation goals of the Environmental Mitigation Trust along with information about the population of vehicles and equipment in use in California eligible for funding. Engine, vehicle and equipment manufacturers were on hand to answer questions regarding the technology availability and readiness.
