Rypos' Diesel Particulate Filter Primer

Posted by Rypos on Apr 4, 2022 10:40:00 AM

What Are Diesel Particulate Filters?

Diesel engines emit significant amounts of particulate matter (PM) and oxides of nitrogen (NOx) into the atmosphere. They also emit toxic air pollutants that adversely affect human health and contribute to acid rain, ground-level ozone, and reduced visibility. Studies show that exposure to diesel exhaust causes lung damage and respiratory problems. There is also increasing evidence that diesel emissions may cause cancer.

California Air Resources Board Fines Shipping Company for Violation of State’s Ocean-Going Vessels At-Berth Regulation

Posted by Rypos on Mar 9, 2022 11:36:31 AM

The California Air Resources Board reached a settlement agreement with Wan Hai Lines for $680,750 for violations of the Ocean-Going Vessels At-Berth Regulation. The intent of the regulation is to reduce diesel particulate matter (PM) and oxides of nitrogen (NOx) from ocean-going vessels' auxiliary engines while they are docked at California ports.

Data Centers Are Dependent on Diesel-fired Backup to Remain Operational When The Grid Goes Down

Posted by Rypos on Oct 6, 2021 2:34:00 PM

Demand for data centers increases as modern living becomes more digitized, using incredible amounts of energy. Supplying uninterrupted power to data centers 100% of the time is critical. Data centers must reduce their climate footprint if we are to mitigate climate change. Truthfully, with data centers, critical power is fueled by diesel generators, and reaching 100% renewable energy isn’t possible.

EPA Fines Two Major Fleets Over California Emissions Violations

Posted by Rypos on Nov 11, 2018 11:30:00 AM

Two of the nation’s largest fleets – Schneider (No. 8 on the CCJ Top 250) and Old Dominion Freight Line (No. 10) – have each settled with the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency to pay a combined $225,000 in penalties for violations of California Air Resources Board regulations.

According to EPA, the companies “failed to install particulate filters on some of their heavy-duty diesel trucks and failed to verify that trucks they hired for use in California complied with the state rule.” In addition to paying the fines, the companies will spend a combined $575,000 on air filtration systems at schools in the Los Angeles area.

California regulations require diesel trucks to meet 2010 engine emissions levels or use DPF systems to reduce emissions by 85 percent or more.

EPA Enforces Calif. Emissions Regs, Carrier Hit With $400k in Fines Over DPF Violations

Posted by Rypos on Oct 21, 2018 11:22:00 AM

A Virginia trucking company will pay $100,000 to the Environmental Protection Agency and an additional $290,000 to California in the first federal enforcement of the state’s Truck and Bus Regulation.

The EPA has fined Estes Express Lines $100,000 for lacking diesel particulate filters on 73 trucks operating in California. That represents 15 percent of the fleet Estes operates there, but the national carrier now only uses new trucks in the state.
