KEEP THESE 2022 CARB EMISSIONS REGULATIONS ON YOUR RADAR
The California Air Resources Board (CARB)
Has Approved Two New Regulations:
The California Air Resources Board (CARB) has approved two regulations: the Advanced Clean Truck (ACT) rule and Omnibus Low NOx. While the regulations take effect in California first, many of the states that use CARB rules are expected to adopt the regulations.
ACT focuses on increasing electric vehicle sales by requiring truck manufacturers to sell a percent of their volume as electric vehicles starting in 2024. The goal is to gradually reduce the percentage of Internal Combustion Engine (ICE) trucks every year until they are officially banned in 2040.
The Omnibus Low NOx regulation kicks in much quicker, requiring .05 g/bhp-hr in 2024 and .02 g/bhp-hr in 2027 and new emission warranty requirements in January of 2022. Only CARB-Certified trucks will qualify for the CARB Clean Idle Certification sticker.
Starting in 2022, CARB and EPA will have different emissions warranty requirements. For the truck to be registered in the State of California, it must meet the following warranty requirements:
CAN I GET CLEAN IDLE STICKER?
The Clean Idle Certification is required in many areas throughout the United States and Canada that restrict idling. The good news is that the International A26 is ALREADY 50-state compliant. Meaning that when you order a new truck, if you want that truck to qualify for the Clean Idle sticker, any A26-powered truck is ready to go (if the CARB-compliant base warranty is applied). If you order a truck with a Cummins engine and want the sticker, you must order the CARB-compliant version of that engine in addition to the CARB-compliant base warranty.
STATES THAT ARE LIKELY TO ADOPT THESE REGULATIONS
Many states are looking into adopting ACT and the Low NOx regulations or have signed the Memorandum Of Understanding (MOU). Under the MOU, state signatories will work together to accelerate the medium- and heavy-duty zero-emission vehicle market with input from communities, public health experts, organized labor, utilities, businesses, manufacturers, and environmental groups.
