CARB Approves Fuel Standards for Watercraft, Trains.
According to AP, the new rules will only apply to trains and watercraft operating within the state, and will be introduced over a two-year period beginning in 2006. The news service noted that the new CARB standards precede similar standards to be implemented by the federal government in 2010 for motor vehicles and 2012 for watercraft and trains.
In addition to reducing PM emissions, AP said the new fuel standards are expected to reduce sulfur oxide emissions by 78 percent and nitrogen oxide emissions by approximately three percent.
