Alien Transport, LLC Case Settlement
Alien Transport, LLC Case Settles for $6,700
Alien Transport, LLC will pay $6,700.00 in penalties for violating air quality regulations: $5025.00 will go to the Air Pollution Control Fund, which provides funding for projects and research to improve California's air quality; $1,675.00 will go to the Peralta Colleges Foundation to fund emission education classes conducted by participating California community colleges, under the California Council for Diesel Education and Technology (CCDET) program. This settlement was reached in May 2016.
An investigation by the Air Resources Board (ARB) showed that Alien Transport, LLC failed to bring two of their transport refrigeration units (TRU) into compliance with the applicable in-use performance standards and failed to properly self-inspect their diesel trucks to assure the trucks met state smoke emission standards. ARB documented violations as they related to the Periodic Smoke Inspection Program (PSIP) and the TRU Airborne Toxic Control Measure. To settle the case, Alien Transport, LLC agreed to the $6,700.00 penalty and to comply with PSIP, TRU, and other ARB programs.
