The objective of the Trucking Sector Workgroup is to share information on current and potential emissions reduction projects along the West Coast. The workgroup focuses on topics that include reducing emissions along major transportation corridors (such as Interstates) and near population centers, exploring innovative financing mechanisms, leveraging federal funds for projects, sharing lessons learned regarding technologies and practices, and exploring the use of alternative fuels to reduce emissions. Members of this workgroup are integral to its success in implementing innovative trucking projects. If you would like more information or would like to join the Trucking Sector Workgroup, please contact Trina Martynowicz.
We hope you can join us for the next West Coast Collaborative webinar Tuesday, May 21 from 11-1pm PDT.
This will be the first of a series of webinars that will be focused on various freight technologies, projects and activities. This webinar will provide an overview of a workshop held in Diamond Bar in April: Transitioning to Zero Emission Freight Transport Technologies Symposium. The agenda and presentations from this Symposium can be found here.
For those who will not be in front of a computer during this time, the Powerpoint presentations (PDF) are attached for the overview, provided by Henry Hogo, SCAQMD and the locomotive session, provided by Harold Holmes, ARB. The truck and ports discussions will not have PowerPoint presentations, instead, please see the presentations from the April workshop in Diamond Bar.

Background: The West Coast Collaborative (Collaborative) is an ambitious public-private partnership between leaders from federal, state, and local government, the private sector, academia, and environmental groups committed to reducing diesel emissions and advancing clean air technologies and practices along the West Coast of North America. The Collaborative is part of the National Clean Diesel Campaign (NCDC), which seeks to advance strategies to reduce diesel emissions and move toward cleaner air by working with diesel fleet, engine and emission control technology owners, operators, developers and manufacturers; air quality professionals; environmental and community organizations; and federal, state and local officials. To advance diesel emission reductions, , Congress Authorized funding for clean diesel activities in the Diesel Emissions Reduction Act (DERA) as part of the 2005 Energy Policy Act. The Collaborative aims to reduce diesel emissions through verified and certified technologies, engines and practices, and advances innovative emission reduction technologies and practices. The Collaborative also helps coordinate regional efforts for cleaner fuels and the Clean School Bus USA program. EPA launched, but does not control the Collaborative. The Collaborative focuses on strategic partnership development; expert exchanges; and creating, supporting, and implementing diesel emission reduction projects by providing technical assistance, and funding opportunities.
Partners come from all over Western North America, including California, Oregon, Washington, Alaska, Arizona, Idaho, Nevada, Hawaii, the Territory of Guam, the Commonwealth of the Northern Marina Islands (CNMI), the Territory of American Samoa, Canada, Mexico, and Asian-Pacific countries.
The Trucking Sector Workgroup focuses on topics that include reducing emissions along major transportation corridors (such as Interstates) and near population centers, exploring innovative financing mechanisms, leveraging public and private funds for projects, sharing expertise and lessons learned regarding technologies and practices, and exploring the use of alternative vehicles and fuels to reduce emissions. Members of this workgroup are integral to its success in implementing innovative trucking projects.
