schoolbus -- LESBP 2011 Model Year Emission Standards Required for Program Funding Eligible School Bus Engines will not Change for 2011

Posted: 27 Jan 2011 12:04:55
Lower-Emission School Bus Program (LESBP) staff has posted
Mail-out #MSC 11-02 regarding the emission standards that
replacement school buses must meet to be eligible for funding in
Calendar Year 2011.  ARB staff reviewed the executive orders for
2011 MY school bus engines and has determined most manufacturers
continue to utilize the current emission standards of 0.50 grams
per brake horsepower/hour (g/bhp-hr ) for NOx (Oxides of
Nitrogen).  Therefore, the emission standards for replacement
school buses being funded through the LESBP will remain at 0.50
g/bhp-hr for NOx family emission limit (FEL) and 0.01 g/bhp-hr
for particulate matter (PM) throughout Calendar Year 2011.

Eligibility based on emission standards will be evaluated and
updated at the staff level by the end of the first quarter of
each year. 

This Mail-out can be found at the LESBP Advisories/Mail-outs
