Mission Statement

To advise ARB staff on the technical issues associated with the retrofit of diesel PM controls on stationary, portable, and agricultural diesel engines.

Workgroup Objectives

  • To provide technical information for specifying the appropriate catalyst-based diesel particulate filters for specific vehicle or engine applications applicable to agricultural operations.

  • To assist in developing specific demonstration projects for diesel-fueled engines or vehicles solely used in agricultural operations.

  • To encourage catalyst-based diesel particulate filters manufacturers to participate in the demonstration projects.

  • To assist in identifying unusual vehicle and / or engine operating modes in agricultural operations that would present a technical challenge to
    catalyst-based diesel particulate filters effectiveness and durability.

  • To openly share test data from all demonstration programs, as well as all
    non-proprietary technical data.

  • To identify costs for retrofit devices.

  • To enhance communication between manufacturers of retrofit devices, engine and equipment manufacturers, and end-users regarding technical concerns and solutions.

  • To perform an advisory role in providing technical information regarding diesel PM controls.
