Air district solicits developers of natural gas engines

The San Joaquin Valley Air Pollution Control District is putting up funding to support the development of ultra-clean natural gas engines for heavy duty vehicles.
The funding is part of a $9-million initiative to spur the technology throughout the San Joaquin Valley and Southern California in order to meet clean air goals.
Besides the Valley air district, other funding partners include the South Coast Air Quality Management District, the California Energy Commission and the $500,000 from Southern California Gas Co.
Financial assistance will go to contractor teams to develop natural gas engines for heavy duty vehicles that emit almost zero nitrogen oxide (NOx) pollutants.
The partners are now calling on interested companies with a request for proposals now online at aqmd.gov/rfp/index.html. Proposals are due by July 24.
More information about the initiative can be found on the site. Otherwise, those interested can listen in during a webinar being held June 12 from 10 to 11:30 a.m.
Registration for the webinar can be completed at naturalgastrucks.eventbrite.com.
