California intensifies efforts to slash railway emissions
The California Air Resources Board (CARB) is stepping up efforts to reduce emissions from locomotives and railyards. Starting Nov. 20, the agency will hold a series of public meetings and workshops on draft concepts, with an eye toward drawing up a path to implementation in 2020. Several factors have prompted the state to take a more aggressive approach on railyard pollution, Karen Caesar, a CARB spokesperson, said. One is lack of federal action to reduce pollutants and greenhouse gas emissions for locomotive use, idling and maintenance.
