Project Title & Description
Leonardo Academy Clean Diesel Project
Leonardo Academy will administer a grant program through a regional collaboration that will provide funding for clean diesel projects involving medium-duty and heavy-duty trucks, transit buses, school buses, and non-road equipment operating in non-attainment areas in the States of Illinois, Indiana, Michigan, Minnesota, and Wisconsin. It is anticipated that this project will save over 110,000 gallons of diesel fuel per year and reduce existing emissions by more than 56%. This project will affect 48 diesel engines, with an anticipated improvement in regional and national air quality and increased public health benefits.
