The purpose of this document is to expand the use of retrofit pollution control technologies in heavy-duty engines through the development of consistent guidelines for voluntary retrofit programs. Such programs would be targeted to heavy-duty vehicles not affected by the federal Urban Bus Program and would include control technologies not certified under that program as well as Urban Bus Program certified technologies. Specifically, this document recommends (1) a protocol for calculating state implementation plan (SIP) credits for voluntary retrofit projects; (2) the structure of a third party retrofit verification system for retrofit technologies; and (3) an in-use testing program to ensure that emission reduction credits claimed are achieved in the field. The last chapter of this document outlines model state policies to reduce heavy-duty engine pollution through retrofit initiatives.
