EPA Releases Fourth DERA Report

The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) has released the latest Diesel Emissions Reduction program (DERA) report to Congress.

EPA said this fourth report summarizes the activities and progress made in fulfilling agency’s responsibilities under the DERA program. From FY 2008 to 2016, EPA has awarded $629 million to retrofit or replace 67,300 engines or other pieces of equipment from port, airport, transit and school bus, rail, long and short haul truck, drayage truck, marine vessel, agriculture, construction, and other fleets.

The agency said over 454 million gallons of fuel have been saved as a result of DERA projects and estimates that total lifetime emission reductions achieved through this DERA funding are 15,490 tons of particulate matter (PM) and 472,700 tons of nitrogen oxides (NOX). These reductions have created up to $19 billion of health benefits.
