Clean diesel technologies have arrived and can be applied to older diesel vehicles and equipment to significantly reduce emissions and improve air quality. This session will provide an introduction to diesel retrofit, answering questions such as What is retrofit? Why should diesel vehicles be retrofitted? How should organizations and communities go about retrofitting their fleet? Meant as an overview for planners and policymakers, the session will also address the air quality benefits of retrofitting for the development of State Implementation Plans (SIPs) and meeting transportation conformity concerns.
