  • 2. Set Public Hearing November 1, 2019 to Consider Adoption of and/or Amendments to South Coast AQMD Rules and Regulations

    Wayne Nastri

    (909) 396-3131
    Nakamura (909) 396-3105

    Certify Final Subsequent Environmental Assessment and Amend Rule 1110.2 – Emissions from Gaseous- and Liquid-Fueled Engines, and Rule 1100 – Implementation Schedule for NOx Facilities

    The adoption Resolution of the Final 2016 AQMP directed staff to achieve additional NOx reductions and to transition the RECLAIM program to a command-and-control regulatory structure as soon as practicable. Proposed Amended Rule 1110.2 removes exemptions for internal combustion engines greater than 50 brake horsepower located at RECLAIM facilities. Engines at existing RECLAIM facilities would be required to comply with current Rule 1110.2 NOx emission limits, which represents current BARCT. Proposed Amended Rule 1110.2 incorporates optional averaging times for RECLAIM and non-RECLAIM facilities and modifies monitoring, reporting, and recordkeeping requirements. The proposed amended rule also clarifies the applicability to engines operated at remote radio transmission towers and other clarifications. Proposed Amended Rule 1100 establishes the compliance schedule for equipment at RECLAIM facilities that will be subject to Proposed Amended Rule 1110.2. This action is to adopt the Resolution: 1) Certifying the Final Subsequent Environmental Assessment for Proposed Amended Rule 1110.2 – Emissions from Gaseous- and Liquid-Fueled Engines, and Proposed Amended Rule 1100 – Implementation Schedule for NOx Facilities, and 2) Amending Rule 1110.2 – Emissions from Gaseous- and Liquid-Fueled Engines, and Rule 1100 – Implementation Schedule for NOx Facilities.

    3. Execute Contracts to Develop Methodology and Evaluate Onboard Emission Sensors for On-Road Heavy-Duty Vehicles

    Matt Miyasato

    (909) 396-3249
    Onboard sensors on heavy-duty vehicles have been identified as an important tool to ensure real-world emissions compliance. Onboard sensors are also used to provide real-time information to enable dynamic emission controls. A consortium comprised of the University of California (UCR)/CE-CERT and other industry, government and academia members has been formed to develop the next generation onboard sensors, analysis and reporting methodology. These actions are to execute two contracts from the Clean Fuels Program Fund (31) with: 1) Southwest Research Institute to perform laboratory evaluations of onboard NOx and ammonia sensors in an amount not to exceed $50,000; and 2) UCR/CE-CERT to support the consortium’s project to develop and demonstrate a low-cost onboard NOx and PM sensor-based measurement methodology under real-world operating conditions for heavy-duty vehicles in an amount not to exceed $201,087. (Reviewed: Technology Committee, September 20, 2019; Recommended for Approval)

  • 4. Recognize Revenue and Execute Contracts to Develop, Demonstrate and Commercialize Near-Zero Emissions Natural Gas and Propane Conversion Systems for On-Road Medium-Duty Vehicles

    Matt Miyasato

    (909) 396-3249
    South Coast AQMD has been supporting rapid deployment of near-zero NOx heavy-duty vehicles since natural gas engines became commercially available in 2015, but there is a need to develop and certify near-zero engines for medium-duty vehicles. Staff has received three proposals to develop natural gas and propane conversion systems for the new Ford 7.3-liter gasoline engine and certify the systems to CARB’s optional low-NOx standard for use in Class 4-7 Ford medium-duty vehicle platforms. These actions are to recognize revenue up to $900,000 from SoCalGas into the Clean Fuels Program Fund (31) and execute three contracts totaling $2,099,175 to develop and commercialize the new 7.3-liter near-zero NOx emissions medium-duty natural gas and/or propane conversions systems for different market segments. (Reviewed: Technology Committee, September 20, 2019; Recommended for Approval)

  • 5. Transfer Funds and Amend Contracts for Commercial Electric Lawn and Garden Equipment Incentive and Exchange Program

    Matt Miyasato

    (909) 396-3249
    On April 6, 2018, the Board approved awards to six qualified manufacturers to participate in the Commercial Electric Lawn and Garden Equipment Incentive and Exchange Program. These contracts are funded using $2,327,250 from a U.S. EPA 2016 Targeted Air Shed Grant and $628,077 from South Coast AQMD’s Rule 2202 Air Quality Investment Program. Staff proposes to increase participation in the program by providing an additional 25 percent discount (Plus Up Discount) on eligible lawn and garden equipment. This action is to approve the transfer of up to $750,000 from the Air Quality Investment Fund - Rule 1111 (27) into the Advanced Technology, Outreach and Education Fund (17). This action is to also amend contracts with the participating manufacturers and suppliers of commercial lawn and garden equipment to offer the Plus Up Discount on eligible lawn and garden equipment. (Reviewed: Technology Committee, September 20, 2019; Recommended for Approval)

  • 6. Amend Awards and Issue Program Announcement for Heavy-Duty Trucks under Proposition 1B-Goods Movement Program and Transfer Funds for Near-Zero Emissions Natural Gas Trucks

    Naveen Berry

    (909) 396-2363
    In December 2016 and October 2018, the Board approved awards for clean truck projects under the Proposition 1B-Goods Movement and Community Air Protection Programs. These projects include the replacement of older, high polluting diesel trucks with zero emissions, hybrid and low NOx trucks. Since approval of these awards, some fleets have opted to switch to different truck technologies which require lower incentives or have declined their award. Since this has resulted in available funds, a new Program Announcement (PA) to solicit additional truck applications is required. In October 2018, the Board also recognized $8 million in CEC revenue for near-zero emissions natural gas truck deployments. These actions are to amend the original Proposition 1B-Goods Movement and Community Air Protection awards, issue a PA, and authorize the Executive Officer to execute contracts until all funds are exhausted. This action is to also transfer up to $11 million as a temporary loan from the Proposition 1B-Goods Movement Program Fund (81) into the Community Air Protection AB 134 Fund (77) for near-zero emissions natural gas truck deployments until CEC funding is received. (Reviewed: Technology Committee, September 20, 2019; Recommended for Approval)

  • 10. Amend Contract to Provide Short- and Long-Term Systems Development, Maintenance and Support Services

    Ron Moskowitz

    (909) 396-3329
    South Coast AQMD currently has contracts with several companies for short- and long-term systems development, maintenance and support services.
