The U.S. EPA on Oct. 20 announced it is awarding $1.4 million to the National Biodiesel Foundation to support its efforts to reduce diesel emissions and exposure in the Washington, D.C., area by replacing municipal vehicles with new biodiesel-powered units.

According to the EPA, the NBF’s project will significantly reduce emissions of diesel particulate matter and other pollutants, such as nitrogen oxides, carbon monoxide and hydrocarbons.

The $1.4 million granted to the NBF is part of $5.5 million in clean diesel funding the EPA awarded to Mid-Atlantic Region organizations to support their clean diesel programs and projects to reduce emissions. The Mid-Atlantic Regional Air Management Association Inc. was awarded $1.7 million for a workboat engine and drayage truck replacement program, while the Virginia Port Authority was awarded $2.4 million for a hybrid shuttle carrier replacement project.
