Mobile source emissions make up a large portion of all ozone forming
and carbon monoxide emissions. Many existing State Implementation Plan
(SIP) measures do not take into account recent technological advances
that could further progress toward California's zero emissions goals.
This report evaluates the potential emission reduction and cost
effectiveness of seven new measures that could help significantly
reduce the production of harmful gases.
The proposed control measures would regulate walk-behind residential
lawnmowers, forklifts; sweepers, scrubbers, and varnishers;
burden/personnel carriers and turf trucks; transportation refrigeration
units; truck stop electrification; and tow tractors. Implementation of
these new measures offers many possible benefits, including large
reductions in petroleum use, noise reduction, maintenance savings,
reduced emissions of air toxics, and fuel cost savings. Most of the
measures will not require new technology or extensive research and
could be enforced in a similar fashion to existing ARB rules.
