Lamb Fuels, Inc. Settlement
Lamb Fuels, Inc. Case Settles for $4,000
In August 2014, Lamb Fuels, Inc., agreed to pay $4,000.00 in penalties for violating air quality regulations: $3,000.00 will go to the California Air Pollution Control Fund, which provides funding for projects and research to improve California's air quality; $1,000.00 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 Lamb Fuels Inc., failed to bring the heavy duty diesel fleet 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). Lamb Fuels, Inc., provides reclaimed fuel recovery hauling services from port, auto dismantlers, and airport throughout California. To settle the case, Lamb Fuels, Inc., agreed to the $4,000.00 penalty and to comply with the PSIP programs.
