Cleaire Advanced Emission Controls (Cleaire) Ceasing Operations .

The California Air Resources Board (ARB) has learned that Cleaire
Advanced Emission Controls (Cleaire) ceased operations as of
January 18, 2013.  ARB will be working closely with fleets,
dealers, and parts suppliers to minimize the impact of the
Cleaire closure.  Fleet owners that have retrofit devices from
other manufacturers are not affected by this situation.

ARB is providing guidance to affected fleets using Cleaire
retrofit devices on equipment operating in California.  We will
update this guidance as additional information becomes available,
and have developed a dedicated webpage for information at
Additionally, as part of this effort, ARB is working with other
device manufacturers to assess how they may be able to help
affected fleets.

ARB is committed to working with all stakeholders to ensure that
updated information is available in an accessible and timely
manner.  If you have any additional questions or need assistance,
please contact ARB at (866) 6-DIESEL, or via e-mail at

Background – Mobile Cargo Handling Equipment at Ports and
Intermodal Rail Yards Regulation.  The regulation applies to all
diesel-powered cargo handling equipment (CHE) operating at
California’s ports and intermodal rail yards.  CHE is all
equipment used to transfer goods or perform maintenance and
repairs, and includes:  yard trucks (hostlers), rubber-tired
gantry cranes, top handlers, side handlers, fork lifts, and
loaders.  Adopted in December 2005, the regulation is designed to
reduce diesel particulate matter in communities located near
ports and intermodal rail yards.
