harborcraft -- Alternative Technologies Contact Information Update

Posted: 21 Feb 2012 08:58:07
ARB staff has updated the contact information on the Alternative
Technologies for complying with the Commercial Harbor Craft
Regulation list.   Additional contacts for the Electro-Motive
Diesel remanufacture kits are now listed. 

Alternative Technologies for Complying with the Commercial Harbor
Craft Regulation

The commercial harbor craft regulation offers several options for
vessel owners/operators to comply with the regulation.  One
option is remanufacture of in-use engines to meet the U.S. EPA
current model year marine engine emission standards. The
“Alternative Technologies for Complying with the Commercial
Harbor Craft Regulation” list ARB approved technologies which can
be used to comply with the commercial harbor craft regulation.  

The CHC regulation was adopted in November 2007 and became
effective in January 2009.  Commercial harbor craft includes crew
and supply vessels, commercial fishing vessels, ferries,
excursion vessels, pilot boats, tow boats, tug boats, barges,
dredges, and work boats.  The CHC regulation requires existing
Tier 1 and earlier auxiliary and propulsion engines on in-use
ferries, excursion vessels, tugboats, towboats, crew and supply
vessels, barges, and dredges to meet United States Environmental
Protection Agency Tier 2 or Tier 3 marine engine standards in
effect at the time compliance is required.  This regulation is
part of ARB’s ongoing effort to reduce diesel particulate matter
in communities located near ports.  Additional information on the
regulation is available at the following link:
