Baystar Trans, Inc. Case Settles for $6,000
In September 2014, Baystar Trans, Inc. agreed to pay $6,000.00 in penalties for violating air quality regulations: $4,500.00 will go to the Air Pollution Control Fund, which provides funding for projects and research to improve California's air quality; $1,500.00 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.
An investigation by the Air Resources Board (ARB) showed that Baystar Trans, Inc. failed to meet PM BACT requirements for 2000 through 2004 engine model years by January 1, 2013 as required by the Statewide Truck & Bus Regulation (STB). ARB documented violations as they related to STB. To settle the case, Baystar Trans, Inc. agreed to the $6,000.00 penalty and to comply with STB and other ARB programs.
