Green Up Your Fleet
Project Green Fleet – Spring-Fall 2010
CERTs partnered to support Environmental Initiative’s Project Green Fleet, an efforts to reduce diesel emissions from school buses. Diesel vehicles only account for 10% of traffic on Minnesota roads, but contribute more than 50% of all traffic related air pollution. Project Green Fleet offered a free simple retrofit that reduced bus emissions by 30-50%. The retrofits not only reduce emissions, but also dramatically improve the air quality inside the cabin by reducing Carbon Monoxide, hydrocarbons, and particulate matter exposure to individuals riding the bus. Together, with CERTs outreach, Project Green Fleet retrofitted over 1,500 buses in Minnesota.
