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 available at: http://www.arb.ca.gov/diesel/tru/documents/advisory_13_18.pdf 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.
