This month CARB pronounced on their position regarding GHG phase 2. Adopting most of the federal guidelines of the EPA GHG 2 program, CARB’s take on phase 2 would take effect on trailers MY2020.

Have a look to the slides of CARB’s GHG phase 2 proposal presentation or watch here the video* of the complete board meeting. *Flash plug-in required.

If you rather cut to the chase and only watch the presentation on the new standards, then fast forward the video to 2h16m where Mitzi Magtoto, Air Resources Engineer explains the proposal.
