arbcombo -- PUBLIC WORKSHOP-PROPOSED AMENDMENTS TO THE ALTERNATIVE FUEL CONVERSION CERTIFICATION PROCEDURES FOR NEW AND IN-USE VEHICLES AND ENGINES Posted: 10 Apr 2013 11:42:24
The Air Resources Board invites you to participate in a public workshop to discuss proposed amendments to procedures for converting engines or vehicles that have been certified to operate on diesel or gasoline to operate on alternative fuels. At the workshop, staff will discuss proposed changes related to alternative fuel conversion certifications including: the application and review process, the requirements for demonstrating emission compliance including test fuel requirements, the requirements for demonstrating on-board diagnostic II (OBD II) compliance, and proposed changes to address the sales window for converted vehicles and engines. The primary focus will be on liquefied natural gas, compressed natural gas, and propane; however, conversions to other fuels may be discussed. The workshop will be held at the following time and place: Date: Wednesday, May 1, 2013 Time: 1:00 p.m. to 4:00 p.m. (PDT) Location: Air Resources Board Auditorium Ė Annex 4 9528 Telstar Avenue El Monte, California 91731 For more information about the workshop, please go to: http://www.arb.ca.gov/msprog/mailouts/msc1311/msc1311.pdf For more information about proposed changes to the alternative fuel conversion certification procedures for both new and in-use vehicles and engines, please go to: http://www.arb.ca.gov/msprog/onroad/altfuelconv/altfuelconv.htm If you have any questions or require additional information, please contact Dean Bloudoff, Air Resources Engineer at (916) 322-8987 or via email at firstname.lastname@example.org. Background: California regulations prohibit the conversion of emission-controlled vehicles or engines to operate on an alternative fuel, such as natural gas or propane, in lieu of the original gasoline or diesel fuel unless the alternative fuel conversion has been evaluated and certified by ARB. Recent changes promulgated by U.S. EPA to its procedures for certifying alternative fuel conversions generated numerous inquiries from industry regarding ARBís regulations. In response to comments received, staff is proposing changes to the current alternative fuel conversion certification procedures for both new and in-use vehicles and engines.
