How harmful are small, off-road engines?

December 23, 2019

On December 23, 2019 ECOS submitted a comment letter to the California Air Resource Board (CARB) regarding small off-road engines and their impacts on air quality. In our letter, we state:

We support the pursuit of alternatives and incentives to require the transition to zero emission technologies as soon as possible.

CARB research in 2018 found that long-term exposure to certain exhaust compounds emitted by gasoline powered lawn and garden equipment may increase cancer risk by up to 80 excess cases per one million operators exposed.
