Community-Focused Event: An Introduction to Transport Refrigeration Units and California Air Resources Board’s Regulation Process – Interactive and Informative Session
CARB will be hosting a virtual informative session to present an introduction to Transport Refrigeration Units (TRU) and a summary of CARB’s regulation development process (regulation process). This informative session will also present an overview and goals of a new Community Engagement Plan as part of future regulation development in the Transportation and Toxics Division (TTD), with an opportunity to provide guidance on how to improve the process moving forward.
One goal of this community-focused meeting is to bring awareness to TRUs operating in and near California communities. Another goal is to share information on CARB’s regulation process and highlight how the public can participate throughout a regulation’s development. The first half of this meeting will cover the different classes of TRUs, the operations, emissions, and health impacts. Staff will also discuss the Community Engagement Plan and the current regulation, the TRU Airborne Toxic Control Measure. The second half of the meeting will discuss the different stages of CARB’s regulation process.
