Feasibility and Cost-effectiveness of Controlling Emissions from Diesel Engines in Rail, Marine, Construction, Farm, and Other Mobile Off-highway Equipment

The report studies the feasibility and cost-effectiveness of emissions controls in off-highway diesel vehicles. The report addresses the following major categories of diesel-engined off-highway equipment: Railroad locomotives, marine vessels (except ocean-going ships), farm equipment, construction and industrial equipment (including mining and forestry equipment), and mobile refrigeration units.
