Air Quality in Indiana

Air Quality in Indiana > DieselWise > Indiana Diesel Reduction Projects Indiana Diesel Reduction Projects

IDEM has long been focused on reducing harmful diesel emissions across Indiana. Starting in 2002, IDEM and subsequently the DieselWise Indiana initiative have used a variety of funding mechanisms to provide support for clean diesel projects. To date, DieselWise Indiana has directly reduced diesel emissions on well more than 2,000 vehicles and indirectly made a much larger impact on improved air quality. Below is only sampling of the projects that have been supported through DieselWise Indiana:
