Advanced Clean Fleets Regulation Workgroup on Waste Fleet Provisions

The California Air Resources Board (CARB) invites you to participate in a virtual public workgroup meeting to discuss the proposed Advanced Clean Fleets (ACF) regulation as a follow-up to the first Board hearing held October 27, 2022. At the hearing, the Board directed staff to work with waste hauler and wastewater fleets that are diverting and processing organic waste to fuel existing trucks to meet the requirements of Senate Bill (SB) 1383 to provide more time to transition to a zero-emission fleet.

At the meeting, staff will discuss options on how to better align objectives to transition waste hauler and fleets to zero-emissions and existing efforts to reduce in-state organic waste disposal.  Organic waste diversion is critical to reducing emissions towards achieving the state’s climate goals and the proposed ACF regulation is critical to achieving both the state’s air quality and climate objectives.

The workgroup will be held in person in Sacramento and via Zoom at the following time. Interested parties must register to participate. This meeting will be recorded and made available on the ACF website.

Date:                December 12, 2022
Time:                09:00 a.m. – 12:00 p.m. (Pacific Time)
Location:          California EPA Headquarters, Sacramento
                         Coastal Hearing Room
                         1001 I Street, Sacramento
                         Register for Zoom meeting if participating online


Meeting materials will be made available in advance of the workgroup on the Advanced Clean Fleets Meetings & Events website.


The proposed ACF rulemaking is part of a comprehensive strategy to achieve a zero-emission truck and bus fleet by 2045 everywhere feasible and significantly earlier for market segments such as last mile delivery, public fleets, and drayage applications.

Achieving California’s long-term air quality, climate, and public health goals will require a transition from the conventional combustion technologies to zero-emission everywhere feasible and near-zero-emission powered by clean, low-carbon renewable fuels everywhere else. Promoting the development and use of zero-emission trucks will contribute to the goals set by the Governor’s Executive Order N-79-20 and the Sustainable Freight Action Plan, and will help achieve emission reductions as outlined in the State Implementation Plan, Senate Bill (SB) 350 (de León, Chapter 547, Statutes of 2015), Assembly Bill 32 (Nuñez, Chapter 488, Statutes of 2006), and SB 32 (Pavley, Chapter 249, Statutes of 2016), and Assembly Bill 1279. effort is part of a broader strategy to increase clean, affordable transportation options such as zero-emission technologies, innovative methods to improve freight activity, and efficiency of transportation systems in California.
