Notice of Exemption

Exempt Status
Categorical Exemption
Type, Section or Code
Reasons for Exemption
This work will primarily be completed in existing research facilities and consists of engine development work dynamometer testing, and vehicle integration at local distributors. While some on-road demonstration will occur, the demonstration will not have a significant impact on the environment because the contractor will be utilizing existing fleets to conduct the demonstration and displacing traditional diesel based engines with natural gas near-zero NOx emission engines.
