"According to the ARB, from 2008 to 2020 in California, emissions of all sources of particulate emissions are expected to increase, while emissions from diesel engines and equipment are decreasing," Schaeffer said. "The projected total PM inventory increase from 2008 to 2020 is a 3.2 percent increase. However the eight categories of diesel-powered equipment noted above are reducing their PM 2.5 by 58 percent during the same timeframe."
