Project Title & Description
CDPHE Diesel FY 14
This project will protect more than 2,000 school children daily from
direct exposure to diesel exhaust pollution via the retrofit of 36 diesel buses with EPA- and/or CARB-verified diesel oxidation catalysts, crankcase filtration systems, and direct-fired heaters. To maximize the benefit from these retrofits, CDPHE personnel will travel to school districts for program introduction, pre-testing and measuring of buses for retrofit eligibility, installation and quality assurance of the retrofit equipment, and training of fleet personnel regarding proper use
and maintenance of the pollution reduction/idling reduction technologies.
