Connecticut DEP Gets $50,000 to Retrofit Maintenance Vehicles

The Northeast Diesel Collaborative Emissions Reduction Grant Program is providing $50,000 to the Connecticut Department of Environmental Protection to help fund a project that will help improve air quality.

The program funds, administered by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, program, will go toward installing advanced pollution control technology on state-owned maintenance equipment.

The grant will allow the state agency to install diesel oxidation catalysts on all 13 of the heavy-duty diesel engines in the state maintenance fleet and on up to four pieces of construction equipment. The agency will also partner with the state Department of Transportation to install up to seven diesel particulate filters on air compressors used on highway construction sites around the state. Both types of pollution-cutting equipment are verified by EPA to reduce particulate emissions by approximately 90 percent and 20 percent, respectively.
