Proposed Clean Diesel Initiative
The FY 2006 President’s Budget provided $15.0 million for
the Clean Diesel Initiative. EPA and a coalition of clean diesel
interests will work together to expand the retrofitting of diesel
engines into new sectors by adopting a risk-based strategy, targeting
key places and working with specific use sectors to identify opportunities
to accelerate the adoption of cleaner technologies. Through regional
efforts like the West Coast Collaborative, the Initiative will support
diesel engine retrofits, rebuilds, and replacements, anti-idling
measures, clean fuel infrastructure projects, and other activities
to achieve more immediate air quality improvements.
This allocation is an example of an early success of the West Coast
Collaborative. The Collaborative will demonstrate the success of
public/private partnerships and will be used to grow the program
