  • About the Northeast Diesel Collaborative (NEDC)
    Activities NEDC Priorities for 2013 2014 On a biennial basis the NEDC Steering Committee and Advisory Subcommittee establish a set of priorities that the Collaborative agrees to focus on for the coming years Please follow this link to access the NEDC priorities for 2014 2015 We work at the local and regional levels to Educate the public lawmakers and public and private fleet operators about the importance of and strategies for reducing diesel emissions Integrate and expand existing programs Create new partnerships programs and other measures to reduce emissions Demonstrate new technologies and expand the use of proven technologies Improve data on emission and fleet inventories as well as exposure and health effects Specific activities include Retrofit retire and replace older engines Promote idling alternatives for truckers such as truck stop electrification and auxiliary power units Work with states on enforceable measures to reduce idling Promote use of clean diesel technologies in contract specifications Promote cleaner fuels Create educational opportunities and materials for key sectors and stakeholders Measure and assess program effectiveness Who We Are Northeast Diesel Collaborative members include EPA Region 1 Maine New Hampshire Vermont Massachusetts Rhode Island Connecticut EPA Region 2 New York New Jersey Puerto Rico and the US Virgin Islands The environmental agencies of the 8 northeastern states and 2 Caribbean Territories NESCAUM Northeast States for Coordinated Air Use Management Members of the Ports Goods Movement Clean Construction Funding and Strategic Planning Work Groups represented by multiple sectors NEDC Steering Committee Advisory Subcommittee The Steering Committee consisting of management staff from the EPA Regional Offices the diesel emissions reduction program managers within the state and territorial air quality agencies and designated NESCAUM staff is the goal setting body of the NEDC The NESCAUM Board of Directors plus the Air Program leadership from EPA Regions 1

  • NEDC Marine Repower Guide: The economic and environmental benefits of diesel engine repowering | Northeast Diesel Collaborative (NEDC)
    in air quality that can be made today The good news for vessel owners is that in many cases new modern diesel engines are not only cleaner from an emission standpoint but are also highly turbocharged and more fuel efficient resulting in lower annual fuel costs improved oil drain intervals and in many cases less frequent maintenance and rebuild intervals The operational savings will ultimately translate into a return on investment ROI that over time will pay for the new engines In most instances the ROI is in the 10 to 20 year range stretching perhaps to as little as 7 years if the application has both high fuel consumption and high fuel costs There are a few metrics to consider when contemplating whether a repower makes good economic sense as well as good environmental sense Certainly the new engine will be cleaner but like ROI the environmental return ton of pollution reduced needs to be cost effective The first step is to know your vessel Engine model horsepower and model year Annual fuel use hourly fuel use x operating hours is not accurate enough Engine operating hours Whether the fuel injection system is electronic or mechanical Consider equipment useful life obsolete engines space in the engine room As a rule of thumb engine repowers only make good economic and environmental sense if the fuel consumption is greater than 100 gallons of fuel annually for each hp of installed engine capacity For example a 3 000 hp vessel would generally need to have an annual fuel consumption of 300 000 gallons per year or greater in order for a modest i e 10 fuel efficiency improvement to have a reasonable chance of generating an acceptable ROI The second step is to determine whether your existing engines may be regulated under new EPA rules 40 CFR 1042 This rule does not require repowering but it may increase the maintenance costs of older engines making repowering look more economically favorable EPA defines remanufacture as replacement of all cylinder liners either in one event or over a five year period Vessel owners operators and engine rebuilders who remanufacture those engines would be required to use a certified remanufacture system when an engine is remanufactured if such a certified system is available if there is no certified kit there is no requirement until the time of the next remanufacture event The program applies to engines with maximum engine power greater than 600 kW and manufactured in 1973 or later through Tier 2 2012 14 depending on engine size A certified marine remanufacture system must achieve a 25 percent reduction in PM emissions compared to the engine s measured baseline emissions level without increasing NOX emissions EPA Certified Marine Repower Kits can be found at http www epa gov otaq certdata htm marine reman The third step is to estimate the baseline emissions of the existing vessel engines as this factors into the cost effectiveness calculation for a repower i e ton The EPA Diesel
