The Government of the western Canadian province of British Columbia will be the first to require older commercial trucks to be retrofitted with new emissions control equipment. The BC government will require all heavy duty diesel vehicles, including government fleet vehicles that weigh more than 11,000 lbs, to be fitted with a diesel oxidation catalyst or something equivalent by 2009. The retrofits should cost about $1,200 to $2,500 each and will be required on about 7,500 vehicles. California is expected to have a similar requirement by 2009 as well.
