CONTROLLING LOCOMOTIVE EMISSIONS IN CALIFORNIA: TECHNOLOGY, COST-EFFECTIVENESS AND REGULATORY STRATEGY. REVISED FINAL REPORT
The objectives of this study were: to identify a set of feasible and cost-effective techniques to reduce locomotive pollutant emissions in California to the greatest extent possible at an acceptable cost; to characterize the technical requirements, costs, emissions impacts, and impact on railway operations of each technique in sufficient detail to serve as a basis for regulation; to identify and recommend areas where ARB or other public funding for additional research, development, and demonstration of specific techniques is required in order to make them available for widespread application; and to develop and recommend a regulatory strategy and implementation schedule for reducing locomotive emissions in California as quickly and cost-effectively as possible, and estimate the emission benefit which would result.
