TRUs are refrigeration systems powered by diesel internal
combustion engines designed to control the environment of
temperature-sensitive products that are transported in trucks,
trailers, shipping containers, and railcars.  These units operate
at California distribution centers, grocery stores and other
facilities which are often in close proximity to residential
neighborhoods.  The emissions from these units pose a potential
threat to both public health and the environment.  In 2004, the
TRU Airborne Toxic Control Measure (ATCM) was adopted to reduce
diesel particulate matter (PM) emissions from TRU engines.  The
TRU ATCM was amended in November 2010 and those amendments became
effective March 7, 2011.

Information about the current TRU ATCM is available at the TRU
