tru -- ARB publishes TRU Advisory 13-28: Terminal Operator Reports Posted: 29 Aug 2013 14:02:31
TRU Advisory 13-28 explains the California Air Resources Board’s requirements for Operator Reports under the Transport Refrigeration Unit (TRU) Regulation. Operator Report requirements apply to terminal operators of terminals located in California. A terminal is any place where a TRU-equipped or TRU genset-equipped truck, trailer, refrigerated shipping container, or railcar, or TRU generator set is regularly garaged, maintained, operated, or dispatched from. Terminals include distribution centers, port terminals, port depots, dispatch offices, cross-dock facilities, and maintenance shops (excluding third party repair shops). A terminal operator is the person that owns or operates the terminal.

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, that all 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 Airborne Toxic Control Measure (ATCM) was adopted by the Board to reduce diesel particulate matter emissions from TRUs and TRU gen set engines. Amendments were adopted by the Board in November 2010 and October 2011.
