Webinar Recording Available: Off-Road Diesel Issues Facing the Construction Industry

January 7, 2009
Nearly 600 interested stakeholders registered for a webinar that AGC sponsored in conjunction with the Diesel Technology Forum on Dec. 3-Off-Road Diesel Developments: Clean Diesel Technology, Regulations and Requirements Facing Today's Construction Industry.  The recorded webinar as well as the presentations are available at no charge at www.dieselforum.org/webinars. AGC staff presented on the Association's overall policy on diesel retrofit and also provided details on California's off-road diesel emission standards, including the problems that the rule raises in that state and nationwide. Representatives from Caterpillar and John Deere discussed the changes being made to new construction equipment to reduce engine emissions, as well as the costs and benefits of retrofit technologies designed to clean-up the existing diesel fleets.
