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: 

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.

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.
