tru -- ARB updates TRU Advisory 08-12, explaining ULETRU compliance extension for early or on-time LETRU compliance Posted: 24 Jul 2013 11:36:05
The California Air Resources Board has updated their Transport Refrigeration Unit (TRU) Advisory 08-12, which explains how early and on-time compliance with the Low-Emissions TRU In-Use Performance Standards (LETRU) can qualify for an extension (delay) in the compliance date for the Ultra-Low-Emission TRU In-Use Performance Standards (ULETRU) and describes the application process for getting the ULETRU extension approved. The ULETRU extension applies to owners of model year 2003 and older truck or trailer TRUs or TRU generator sets (gen sets) that met the Low-Emission TRU (LETRU) in-use standard early, or by the original compliance deadline. The updated TRU Advisory 08-12 is available at: http://www.arb.ca.gov/diesel/tru/documents/advisory_08_12.pdf An email to the TRU List Serve a few minutes ago announced the availability of the application form, which is only available by calling the TRU Help Line at 1-888-878-2826. Where can I get more information? For general information about the TRU Regulation, the TRU Website is at: http://www.arb.ca.gov/diesel/tru/tru.htm The ARBER registration website is at: http://www.arb.ca.gov/arber/arber.htm ARBER Registration Help pages are at: http://www.arb.ca.gov/arber/trureg/trureg.htm TRU Advisories are listed at: http://www.arb.ca.gov/diesel/tru/advisories.htm If you have questions about compliance or registration in ARBER, please call the TRU Help Line at 1-888-878-2826 or call 1-916-327-8737. 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.
