arbcombo -- Draft Technology Assessment for Transport Refrigerators Posted

The California Air Resources Board (ARB/Board) announces the
release of the draft document "Technology Assessment: Transport
Refrigerators."

This draft technology assessment examines technologies projected
for development over the next five to ten years that can be
applied to transport refrigeration systems and insulated cargo
vans to reduce fuel consumption, greenhouse gases (GHG) and
criteria pollutant emissions (e.g. nitrogen oxides and
particulate matter). Such technologies support ARB's long term
objective of transforming the on- and off-road mobile source
fleet into one utilizing zero and near-zero emission technologies
to meet air quality and climate change goals.

Sources of information used in the draft assessment include an
extensive list of published reports, research papers, and
documented conversations with technology experts. The draft
assessment discusses each technology by providing a basic
description, the current state of development or commercial
readiness, economics, potential emission reductions, advantages,
and key performance parameter issues and deployment challenges.


The draft technology assessment can be viewed at:
http://www.arb.ca.gov/msprog/tech/techreport/tru_07292015.pdf

We encourage interested parties to submit comments on the draft
technology assessment through the technology and fuels assessment
web page for public comments at:
http://www.arb.ca.gov/msprog/tech/techreport/comments.htm. We
request to receive comments within 30 days of the posting of this
draft assessment, if possible.

If you have questions regarding the draft technology assessment,
please contact Mr. Rodney Hill, Staff Air Pollution Specialist,
at 916-327-6636, or email to Rodney.Hill@arb.ca.gov.

In April 2015, ARB staff released a Sustainable Freight
Discussion Document which discussed a potential regulation to
limit stationary operation of fossil-fueled transport
refrigeration units (TRU) for cold storage and incentives to
install infrastructure at affected locations to facilitate
compliance strategies. This potential near-term GHG control
measure is only in the preliminary concepts phase, and workshops
to discuss the concepts with stakeholders will begin fall 2015.
For more information about a potential near-term GHG control
measure for TRUs, please visit ARB's website at:
http://www.arb.ca.gov/cc/cold-storage/cold-storage.htm

For more information on the Sustainable Freight Discussion
Document, please see ARB's Sustainable Freight website at:
http://www.arb.ca.gov/gmp/sfti/sfti.htm

Background: The technology assessments were discussed at
workshops in September 2014 and at the December 2014 ARB Board
meeting. More information on the assessments is available at
ARB's website at http://www.arb.ca.gov/msprog/tech/tech.htm . An
overview of the technology assessments was released in April 2014
and is available on ARB's website at
http://www.arb.ca.gov/msprog/tech/report.htm.

arbcombo -- Agenda Posted: August 5, 2015 Symposium on the Governor's Natural and Working Lands Greenhouse Gas Reduction Goals

On August 5, 2015, the California Natural Resources Agency,
California Department of Food and Agriculture, and California Air
Resources Board will conduct a public symposium to discuss the
development of strategies to achieve Governor Edmund G. Brown
Jr's 2030 greenhouse gas reduction goals. The draft agenda for
this symposium is now available on the Air Resources Board's
website: http://arb.ca.gov/cc/pillars/natworklands/agenda.pdf

This symposium will discuss strategies to secure and enhance
carbon storage on natural and working lands, including farms,
rangelands, forests and wetlands throughout California. Topics
include protecting and managing land to minimize greenhouse gas
emissions, increase carbon sequestration rates, and improve
opportunities to develop synergies that promote resource
stewardship and contribute to greenhouse gas emission reductions
in other sectors.

This symposium is one of a series of public forums soliciting
stakeholder input on five key climate change strategy pillars
that Governor Brown identified in his January 2015 inaugural
address. The pillars recognize that several major areas of the
California economy will need to reduce their emissions to meet
the 2030 target. The five pillars are: (1) reducing today's
petroleum use in cars and trucks by up to 50 percent; (2)
increasing from one-third to 50 percent our electricity derived
from renewable sources; (3) doubling the efficiency savings
achieved at existing buildings and making heating fuels cleaner;
(4) reducing the release of methane, black carbon, and other
short lived climate pollutants; and (5) managing farm and
rangelands, forests and wetlands so they can store carbon.

website: http://www.arb.ca.gov/cc/cc.htm
