arbcombo -- Railroads Demonstrate Compliance with Locomotive Fleet Average Emission Reductions Posted: 21 Sep 2012 16:06:45
The Air Resources Board (ARB) has approved the Union Pacific Railroad (UP) and BNSF Railway (BNSF) locomotive fleet average and ultra-low emitting locomotive credit compliance submittals for calendar-year 2010. ARB has determined that UP and BNSF achieved the required Tier 2 Oxides of Nitrogen (NOx) locomotive fleet average - 5.5 grams per brake-horsepower-hour - set forth in the 1998 Locomotive NOx Fleet Average Agreement for the South Coast Air Basin (1998 Agreement). The 1998 Agreement, along with U.S. EPA emission standards for locomotives, has provided the South Coast Air Basin with a reduction of up to 24 tons per day of NOx emissions in 2010. Additionally, ARB staff estimates that the 1998 Agreement has resulted in significant increased usage of cleaner locomotives throughout the State. The 1998 Agreement was signed by ARB, UP, and BNSF in July 1998, and achieves a Tier 2 locomotive NOx fleet average of 5.5 grams per brake horsepower-hour through the accelerated introduction of cleaner locomotives. The UP and BNSF compliance reports are available to the public. The documents can be found on ARBís 1998 Agreement website: http://www.arb.ca.gov/railyard/1998agree/1998agree.htm If you have questions regarding the 1998 Agreement or the related documents, please contact Mr. Harold Holmes, Manager, Rail Strategies Section, at (916) 324-8029 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
