tru -- ARB publishes TRU Advisory 12-23 on Prohibitions on Sale of Noncompliant TRUs and Engines Posted: 13 Sep 2012 13:34:31
The California Air Resources Board (ARB or Board) has posted TRU Advisory 12-23 on the TRU Website. TRU Advisory 12-23 explains several prohibitions that apply to the sale of noncompliant transport refrigeration units (TRU) and TRU engines. TRU Advisory 12-23 applies to manufacturers, distributors, dealers, repair shops, auctioneers, motor carriers, import/export agents, salvage yards, or any person that sells, offers for sale, imports, delivers, purchases, receives, or otherwise acquires TRUs, TRU generator sets, TRU engines or TRU generator set engines. More detailed information is provided in TRU Advisory 12-23, which is posted on the TRU Website at: http://www.arb.ca.gov/diesel/tru/tru.htm. Background: TRUs are refrigeration systems powered by integral diesel internal combustion engines designed to control the environment of temperature-sensitive products that are transported in trucks, trailers, shipping containers, and railcars. The emissions from these units are a source of unhealthful air pollutants including particulate matter, toxic air contaminants, nitrogen oxides, carbon monoxide, and hydrocarbons, and pose a potential threat to both public health and the environment. These units often congregate in large numbers at California distribution centers, grocery stores, and other facilities where they run for extended periods of time to ensure their perishable contents remain cold or frozen. These distribution and loading facilities are often in close proximity to schools, hospitals, and residential neighborhoods. In 2004, the TRU Regulation was adopted by the Board to reduce diesel particulate matter emissions from TRUs and TRU generator set engines. Amendments were adopted by the Board in November 2010 and October 2011.
