tru -- ARB publishes TRU Advisory 13-18: Use of replacement engines to comply with in-use performance standards

Posted: 28 Aug 2013 14:56:38
The California Air Resources Board (ARB) has published Transport
Refrigeration Unit (TRU) Advisory 13-18, which explains the TRU
Regulationís requirements related to repowering TRUs with new or
rebuilt replacement engines to comply with the regulationís
in-use performance standards. 

TRU Advisory 13-18 applies to TRU owners, who are responsible for
compliance with the TRU Regulationís in-use performance
standards.  TRU original equipment manufacturers and engine
rebuilders also have requirements for providing supplemental
labels and registration information documents for the replacement
engines they supply.  In addition, TRU dealers and repair shops
have requirements related to registration information documents
if they sell and/or install new or rebuilt replacement engines. 

TRU Advisory 13-18 explains these requirements in detail and is

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.
