  4. 4. What Types of Projects Will DieselWise Indiana Fund  U.S. EPA and/or CARB Verified Retrofit Technologies • Examples include diesel oxidation catalysts, diesel particulate filters, closed crank case ventilation systems  U.S. EPA and/or CARB Verified Idle Reduction Technologies • Examples include auxiliary power units, fuel operated heaters, battery air conditioning systems, thermal storage systems 4
  5. 5. What Types of Projects Will DieselWise Indiana Fund  U.S. EPA and/or CARB Verified Aerodynamic/Low Rolling Tires • Examples include trailer side skirts, trailer gap reducers, trailer boat tails, single wide wheels and tires  U.S. EPA Certified Engine Repowers • Examples include pulling existing diesel engine from operating equipment and replacing engine and emission control equipment  U.S. EPA Certified Vehicle and Equipment Replacements • Examples include pulling entire vehicle/equipment out of service and replacing with cleaner diesel alternative serving the same purpose 5
