Portlands All Service Moving Tops List of ODEQ's 2022 Diesel Emissions Mitigation Grant recipients

ODEQ, August 19, 2022 The Oregon Department of Environmental Quality recently announced recipients of nearly $7.5 million in funding for projects designed to reduce diesel emissions across the state and among vulnerable populations. Under the Diesel Emissions Mitigation Grant Program, eight selected projects will help eliminate air contaminants affecting public health and climate by retrofitting or replacing older medium- and heavy-duty diesel equipment with new, cleaner alternatives. The selected projects will remove more than 38 tons of harmful air pollution, including nitrogen oxide and fine particulate matter, from Oregon’s air. Projects range from retiring an old diesel transit trolley and purchasing a new, all-electric one in Wilsonville to replacing two diesel refuse trucks with one all-electric and one compressed natural gas hauler in Athena, to installing diesel particulate filters and replacing medium- and heavy-duty diesel trucks with zero-emission transportation in the Portland Metro area and across the state.

“In its second year, the Diesel Emissions Mitigation Grant Program continues to encourage businesses and government organizations to commit to cleaner air,” said DEQ Air Quality Division Administrator Ali Mirzakhalili. “DEQ offers many programs in addition to this grant to support the reduction of transportation-related emissions. The goal is to help transition light-, medium- and heavy-duty vehicles to zero emissions throughout Oregon.”
