SWC Credit 2: Energy and Emissions Optimization of Solid Waste Collection

SWC Credit 2: Energy and Emissions Optimization of Solid Waste Collection (1-3 points)

Reciprocal 

Intent:

Reduce fuel consumption and lower air emissions resulting from waste collection

Local Government and Industry Requirements:

Demonstrate fleet fuel economy or criteria emissions of solid waste collection per the following criteria:

 

Option 1

Or

Option 2

 

Tier 1: (1 Point)

Demonstrate fleet efficiency of 3.4 miles per gallon/gallons diesel equivalent.

 

Demonstrate fuel economy of <2.8 annual gallons per ton of waste collected.

 

 

Tier 2: (1 Point)

 

Demonstrate fleet efficiency of 3.55 miles per gallon/gallons diesel equivalent.

 

Demonstrate fuel economy of <2.7 annual gallons per ton of waste collected.

Tier 3 (1 point)

Demonstrate fleet efficiency of 3.75 miles per gallon/gallons diesel equivalent.

 

Demonstrate fuel economy of <2.55 annual gallons per ton of waste collected.

Or

Demonstrate that annual fleet emissions meet Federal Low Emission Vehicle (LEV) Standards for Heavy Duty Highway Engines in 40 CFR 88.105-94

Potential Strategies

●    Baseline: MPG or MPGGE (Gallon-gasoline equivalents)

●    GGE conversion factors: https://epact.energy.gov/fuel-conversion-factors

Diesel gallon equivalents = gasoline gallon equivalents * 1.155
