The Pollution Prevention Partnership Clean Fleet program tests the exhaust emissions of gasoline vehicles for elevated levels of CO, C02, hydrocarbons and NOx. This free and confidential partnership provides significant environmental and economic benefits to your agency and the community. Vehicles producing elevated levels of CO, C02, VOCs or NOx jeopardize Corpus Christi's attainment status of ozone standards. Vehicles that are producing elevated levels of pollutants are typically not running efficiently. Therefore, each vehicle that is running inefficiently hurts the agency bottom line in cost per vehicle mile traveled. Operating a vehicle fleet that is running efficiently is one of the easiest ways that your agency can protect its cost to operate and reduce the possibility of burdensome regulations at the same time.
The Pollution Prevention Partnership's "Clean Fleet" program has the testing equipment, staff and expertise to inform you if any of your fleet vehicles might need some attention. Testing of each vehicle takes about 2-3 minutes and testing can be done at your site in Nueces or San Patricio counties, or on TAMU-CC campus.
Considering alternative fuels for your fleet? There are many variables to consider when choosing a fuel source for fleet vehicles. It is a fact that different fuels have different impacts on the environment, but what are the benefits and costs all things considered? The Clean cities Program and the Argonne National Laboratory have created a tool, Alternative Fuel Life-Cycle Environmental and Economic Transportation Tool (AFLEET), to model many variables involved in making an informed decision about alternative fuels.
This is a sophisticated tool with simple spreadsheet inputs which takes many factors into consideration.
Help keep your fuel costs down and keep Nueces and San Patricio counties in Federal Ozone compliance.
