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 distribution centers, grocery stores and other facilities
which are often in close proximity to residential neighborhoods. 
The emissions from TRUs 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,

Information about the current TRU ATCM is available at the TRU
Website at:  http://www.arb.ca.gov/diesel/tru/tru.htm
