Clean Air Act Advisory Committee
Clean Diesel Independent Review Panel
This panel is currently inactive.
The Clean Diesel Independent Review Panel was created by a charter issued under the Clean Air Act Advisory Committee, which was originally established on November 19, 1990 in accordance with the requirements of the Federal Advisory Committee Act.
The purpose of the panel is to provide independent advice to the Agency on industries' progress in developing and demonstrating technologies that will be used to reduce engine exhaust emissions and to lower the sulfur level of highway diesel fuel in accordance with the dates incorporated in the highway diesel program promulgated in 2001 (http://www.epa.gov/otaq/highway-diesel/index.htm).
Specifically, the objectives of the panel's charter are to assess the progress of:
- manufacturers of diesel engines and emission control systems in developing technology to reduce engine exhaust pollutants, and;
- the fuels industry in developing and demonstrating technologies to effectively lower the sulfur level of highway diesel fuel.
The panel is composed of leading experts from the public health community, petroleum refiners, fuel distributors and marketers, engine manufacturers, emission control systems manufacturers, and state governments. The panel will hold meetings, analyze issues, conduct reviews, make necessary findings, and undertake other activities necessary to meet its responsibilities. The panel has been requested to produce a final report by the panel charter's expiration date of September 30, 2002.
