Construction and Non-road


Construction and other non-road equipment provide us with comfortable buildings and even power in remote areas. However, this technology sector requires collaborative work to reduce diesel emissions as the power this equipment requires is great and the equipment is varied. This page shares information on diesel-emissions reduction opportunities including funding opportunities, contractual incentives, and upgrading or retrofitting older diesel equipment. The WCC also funds a variety of Construction and Non-Road Projects and administers EPA funding programs such as the Diesel Emissions Reduction Act (DERA) program.

Highlighted Work

One innovative WCC construction project is the Zero Emission Battery Electric Compact Excavator and Compact Wheel Loader Demonstration Project: Through U.S. EPA's Targeted Airshed Grant program, the South Coast Air Quality Management District (AQMD)  partnered with Volvo CE to demonstrate two zero emission battery-electric construction equipment: a 2.5 ton battery powered, zero emission compact excavator that has a 20 kWh battery system and 500 millimeters (mm) standard bucket width; and a 5 ton battery powered, zero emission compact wheel loader that has a 40 kWh battery system, and can be fitted with a 1 cubic meter bucket.
