Alaskan Truckers Looking at Cleaner Diesel Fuel

April 10, 2002

Truckers in Alaska will be required to use ultra-low sulfur diesel fuel by 2010, according to Michele Brown, Department of Environmental Conservation commissioner. Brown added that the state still needs to explore how to make the rule work in rural parts of the state. The announcement confirms that the state will follow U.S. Environmental Protection Agency rules regarding diesel emissions. The new rules are expected to add at least 5 cents per gallon to the price of diesel fuel, perhaps even more in Alaska. Brown told the Associated Press that problems with getting low-sulfur fuel in Arctic grade need to be solved before the rules can go into effect.
