The Board's ICAT program co-funds demonstrations of new technologies that can improve air quality in California and support Air Resources Board (ARB) programs while helping to stimulate the state's economy. The ARB staff will recommend that the Board approve co-funding for three projects that were received in response to a public solicitation. These projects were selected because they address important ARB program needs, are technically sound, can reduce emissions, and can succeed commercially within a few years. The Board will consider proposed resolutions to approve co-funding for these three projects.

This notice and additional information related to the ICAT program can be found at ARB's internet site /research/icat/icat.htm.
