The report groups low cost activities in three categories: (1) operating strategies, (2) fuel strategies, and (3) equipment strategies. Operating strategies in Section 2 include reducing unnecessary idling, improving preventive maintenance, and training equipment operators. Section 3 focuses on use of cleaner fuels, including ultra-low sulfur diesel and biodiesel. Equipment strategies in Section 4 include retrofits, repowering/engine upgrades, and electrification. For each strategy, we provide a brief description, report cost/benefit information, and discuss practical implementation issues. Section 5 summarizes our conclusions.
