EPA awarding $30M for clean diesel projects

The US Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) is awarding $30 million for clean diesel projects as part of its ongoing campaign to reduce harmful diesel exhaust. The Diesel Emission Reduction Program (DERA) is designed to replace, retrofit or repower older diesel-powered engines in marine vessels, locomotives, trucks and buses.

DERA was enacted in 2005 and since it was first funded in FY 2008, EPA has awarded more than 500 grants nationwide.

Winners of this year’s awards were selected based on a proposal’s potential for maximizing health and environmental benefits by targeting areas that have significant air quality issues. New this year is an increased funding availability per award that will allow EPA to target larger engines used in marine vessels and locomotives, which will result in significant emissions reduced per engine.
