EPA Announces $206M of ARRA Funding Available for Diesel Emissions Reduction Projects

State and local governments, nonprofit organizations and tribal agencies can now apply for up to an estimated $206 million in funding for diesel emission reduction projects. This is Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) funding available under the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act (ARRA) of 2009 that President Obama signed into law 17 February.

Diesel grantees will use the total estimated $206 million to implement clean diesel projects that would cut thousands of tons of diesel emissions, including particulate matter and nitrogen oxides. An additional $5 million is available form EPA to provide training for jobs and to facilitate job creation in the assessment, remediation, or preparation of brownfields sites for sustainable reuse. EPA anticipates awarding 10-12 cooperative agreements, whose maximum value each shall not exceed $500,000.

Preference will be given to projects that can be started and completed expeditiously. EPA plans to provide the funding in June.

Converting diesels to run on CNG would be a good start. You clean up the air and stop using imported oil all in one move.

how about injecting DME with diesel to reduce PM and NO.
