Region 8

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.

The mission of the RMCDC is to reduce diesel emissions through voluntary efforts to improve air quality and protect human health by promoting grants, leveraging additional funding and offering technical assistance and education to interested parties in Region 8.

Goals include:

  • 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.
  • Encouraging policies and practices to reduce unnecessary idling.
  • Assisting with clean diesel projects by promoting grants and leveraging additional funding.
