Cleaner Trucks are Vital for Better Air and the Climate: An Introduction to the Basics of the Colorado Clean Trucking Strategy and Why You Should Care
|OVERVIEW To address climate change and improve Colorado’s air quality, the Air Pollution Control Division plans to propose Advanced Clean Truck and Low NOx Truck Rule to the Colorado Air Quality Control Commission (AQCC) later this year. The Advanced Clean Trucks (ACT) rule would require manufacturers of medium and/or heavy-duty on-road vehicles to sell an increasing percentage of zero-emission vehicles of their annual sales from model year 2024 and beyond. This would reduce greenhouse gas emissions and other air pollutants. The Low NOx Omnibus rule would require heavy-duty vehicle manufacturers to make cleaner vehicles, improve how they test vehicle engines, and extend engine warranties. Nitrogen Oxides are a family of poisonous, highly reactive gasses that are formed when fuel is burned at high temperatures from cars, trucks, buses, power plants and more. This would reduce NOx emissions per new vehicle sold by 75% below current standards in 2024 and 90% below current standards in 2027 – providing significant public health benefits. There will be many opportunities to learn more and provide input throughout the process and we hope you will join us! Share your ideas and comments on these rules HERE.
