About the RMCDC
The Rocky Mountain Clean Diesel Collaborative, the local arm of the National Clean Diesel Campaign, is a partnership of federal, state and local governments, non-profit organizations, the private sector, and environmental groups in Colorado, Montana, North Dakota, South Dakota, Utah and Wyoming. The Collaborative was established in November 2006 and is part of a national campaign to reduce diesel emissions.

- Upgrading/retrofitting existing diesel engines with improved emission control technologies.
- Replacing the oldest engines/vehicles with newer, less polluting engines/vehicles.
- Converting fleets to cleaner burning fuels and/or biofuels.
