Background: TRUs are refrigeration systems powered by diesel internal combustion engines designed to control the environment of temperature-sensitive products that are transported in trucks, trailers, shipping containers, and railcars. These units operate at California distribution centers, grocery stores and other facilities which are often in close proximity to residential neighborhoods. The emissions from these units pose a potential threat to both public health and the environment. In 2004, the TRU Airborne Toxic Control Measure (ATCM) was adopted to reduce diesel particulate matter (PM) emissions from TRU engines. The TRU ATCM was amended in November 2010 and those amendments became effective March 7, 2011. Information about the current TRU ATCM is available at the TRU Website at: http://www.arb.ca.gov/diesel/tru/tru.htm If you have any questions, please contact the TRU Help Line at 1-888-878-2826 or call 916-323-0561.
