EPA Announces West Coast Diesel Emission Reduction Programs.

The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) recently announced that the Lane Regional Air Pollution Authority invested approximately $1.5 million in diesel emission reductions for Oregon, of which the EPA contributed $600,000.

According to EPA, the projects will help fund efforts to reduce emissions from idling trucks on Oregon's I-5 corridor, retrofit state school buses and improve the accessibility and affordability of ultra-low sulfur diesel fuel.

EPA said the West Coast Diesel Emissions Reductions Collaborative has also announced eight new grants to help support emissions reduction initiatives in California, Oregon and Washington.
