PUBLIC WORKSHOPSTATEWIDE DIESEL ENGINE IDLE REDUCTION STANDARD

August 23, 2007

Department of Environmental Protection

Division of Air Resource Management


Executive order 07 127 l.jpg
ExecutiveOrder07-127

  • Establishing Immediate Actions to Reduce Greenhouse Gas Emissions within Florida

    • DEP to develop rules to achieve………

      • Adoption of a statewide diesel engine idle reduction standard.


Impacts of idling l.jpg
ImpactsofIdling

  • Wastes fuel

    • Burns 1 gallon per hour while alternatives like auxiliary power units consume 10% to 20%

  • Increased emissions of greenhouse gases and other pollutants


  • Greenhouse gas ghg impacts l.jpg
    GreenhouseGas(GHG)Impacts

    • Department of Energy

      • Based on nationwide numbers (500,000 long haul trucks in review data)

        • 1 billion gallons for overnight idling

        • 2 billion gallons for workday idling

    • EPA Estimates

      • Emissions from overnight idling alone total 7.6 million tons of CO2

    • California Estimates

      • In 2010, sleeper trucks idling emissions are

        estimated at 1 million tons of GHG emissions

        per year.


    Executive order allows l.jpg
    ExecutiveOrderAllows

    • Broad Range of Options

      • Passenger cars and light trucks

      • Commercial buses

      • Heavy trucks

      • Locomotives

      • Ships at Port


    Common state idle reduction requirements l.jpg
    CommonStateIdleReductionRequirements

    • Target vehicles producing greatest amount of emissions

      • Commercial heavy duty vehicles typically over 10,000 lbs

        • Delivery vehicles

        • Buses

        • Tractor Trailer

    • Idle time 5 minutes

      • Idle time is consistent with EPA’s Model State Idling Law

    • Provide Exemptions


    Common idling exemptions for heavy duty vehicles l.jpg
    CommonIdlingExemptionsforHeavy-DutyVehicles

    • Certain buses

    • Tractors with sleeper berths in use

    • Vehicle queuing

    • Weather or mechanical/safety problems

    • Maintenance

    • Power takeoff operations

    • Emergency or Military operations

    • ADA requirements


    California most stringent requirements l.jpg
    California:MostStringentRequirements

    • First state to restrict idling in sleeper berth trucks

      • 14,000 lbs and over

      • Provisions go into effect January 2008

      • Subject to the 5 minute idle limit

    • New trucks sold in California required to include automatic engine shut down feature


    Emerging areas of idling concern l.jpg
    EmergingAreasofIdlingConcern

    • Locomotives

      • Switchyards

      • Worker breaks

      • Crew changes

    • Ports

      • Vessels

      • Cargo handling equipment

      • Trucks and vehicles

      • Harbor Vessels

      • Rail


    Idle reduction options l.jpg
    IdleReductionOptions

    • Operational practices

    • Technology and Infrastructure


    Operational changes l.jpg
    OperationalChanges

    • Turn engine off after a set time

    • Scheduling and logistics improvements to reduce idle times


    Technology options identified by other idle reduction programs l.jpg
    TechnologyOptionsIdentifiedByOtherIdleReductionPrograms

    • Aux power units (APU).

    • Truck stop electrification

      • Onboard power systems

      • Off board power systems

    • Integrated power systems in new vehicles (battery systems)

    • Fuel fired heaters

    • Thermal energy storage systems

    • Automatic engine shutdown system


    Locomotive shipping port technology l.jpg
    Locomotive&ShippingPort Technology

    • Locomotives

      • Hybrid electric switchyard engines

      • Automatic engine shut down system

    • Shipping Ports

      • Shore power infrastructure

      • New technologies (e.g., electric cranes, battery-electric vehicles)


    Conclusions l.jpg
    Conclusions

    • Heavy Duty Diesel Vehicles (HDDV)

      • Primary focus of most state idle reduction strategies

    • Locomotives

      • Not as many regulatory examples

      • More uncertain technology

      • High potential for improvement

    • Shipping Ports

      • Most programs in developing phase

      • Complex to regulate


    Comments l.jpg
    Comments

    • Scope of regulation

      • Identification of diesel engines suitable for inclusion

      • Identification of exemptions

    • Infrastructure needs

    • Costs

      • Technology

      • Implementation

    • Emissions data

    • Avoid negative impacts on overall

      air quality
