Southeast Diesel Collaborative

Alabama Clean Fuels Coalition

Moving Alabama Forward Workshop

March 17, 2010

Dale Aspy, EPA Region 4


Diesel emissions concerns

Diesel Emissions Concerns

  • Diesel exhaust poses significant public health concerns:

    • Exacerbates asthma, causes respiratory and cardiovascular illness, is a potential cause of cancer and premature death

    • Likely human carcinogen at occupational and environmental exposure levels

  • Reductions will decrease CO2

    emissions/aid climate change:

    • One gallon of diesel consumed

      creates 22.2 pounds of CO2

  • Replace diesel fuel with alternatives

    (biodiesel, CNG, propane) to

    improve energy security

GOAL: Improve air quality and public health by reducing emissions from existing diesel engines


Epa regions 1 thru10

EPA Regions (1 thru10)


Sedc objectives 2010 2011

SEDC Objectives 2010-2011

Objectives:

  • Leverage Education and Outreach, strengthen partnerships

  • Promote the use of clean diesel fuels and retrofits

  • Develop incentives to support/facilitate retrofits

  • Promote idling reduction and other strategies

  • Engage transportation, energy and other groups to promote new opportunities in climate change, renewable energy and clean diesel


Sedc success

SEDC Success

  • Voluntary public and private partnership formed in 2006, focused on clean diesel opportunities that incorporate Energy, the Environment and Economics

  • Over 700 partners from government, industry, state/local groups

  • Over 450 clean diesel projects impacting 43,000+ engines

  • Focus Areas

    • Public Fleets

    • Non-Road

    • Freight (Ports>Rail>Trucks, Interstate Green Corridors)

    • Other efforts (Military Clean Diesel, Idle Reduction bumper stickers)

  • Monthly conference calls, focus group calls, workshops, annual meetings


Leadership council awards

Leadership Council Awards

  • SEDC awards for Leadership in Private and Public sectors for first time in 2009

    • Coca Cola Enterprises

    • Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Arpt

    • 2010 awardees selected, announcing Spring


Sedc projects promote the business case

SEDC Projects – Promote the Business Case

  • “The equipment performance does actually improve. It’s a newer, more efficient engine. The better technology of today’s electronically controlled engines can just out perform mechanical engines.” Mike Hulon, Mustang Caterpillar

  • --Nonroad retrofits can be some of the most cost effective

    • Example - a typical bulldozer may emit as much PM as 500 cars

Region 4 sedc events

Region 4/SEDC Events

  • SEDC 5th Annual Partners Meeting on

    JUNE 21-24 in Atlanta

  • Free! Registration will be at www.southeastdiesel.org


Recap

Recap

  • Reducing emissions from diesel engines is one of the most important air quality challenges facing the country

  • SEDC offers a Region-wide network and technical resources available to reduce diesel emissions

  • It’s a shared responsibility – federal, state, private, & local organizations all have to do their part

  • Join the SEDC - www.southeastdiesel.org

  • “The SEDC has given DHEC a platform to discuss mobile source reductions in all areas of the state.”

    Myra Reece, South Carolina Department of Health and Environmental Control

  • “The biggest assets we have are the partnerships we have developed. It is partnerships like these that are needed to successfully address these issues.”

    Kathy Hornsby, Alabama Department of Economic and Community Affairs
