Mobile Source Team: Clean Air Minnesota

Why Mobile Sources?

Nearly 50 percent of air pollution in Minnesota comes from mobile sources of air pollution like diesel-powered trucks, construction equipment and other moving sources. Diesel engines can be important for our economy, but they also negatively affect air quality and public health.

Since 2005, the Minnesota Pollution Control Agency’s Diesel Emission Reduction Act grants and Environmental Initiative’s Project Green Fleet have reduced diesel pollution from fine particles equivalent to taking 750,000 cars off the road. Taking those cars off the road means eliminating 45 tons of fine particle pollution per year through diesel equipment replacement or retrofitting with cleaner options.

Clean Air Minnesota’s mobile source team is working to maximize emission reduction opportunities from diesel fleets and other mobile sources of air pollution.
