Construction Equipment Emissions Reduction Project

Location: Oregon: Portland

EPA is providing a $26,000 grant to the Oregon Environmental Council, with $44,000 in matching funds. This project will reduce diesel emissions from construction equipment used in the City of Portland by at least 20 percent through diesel engine retrofits, cleaner fuels, and idle reduction policies. Once evaluated, the project’s most efficient methods may be applied towards reducing construction equipment emissions along the West Coast.
