                               EXECUTIVE ORDER D—535

                               Relating to Exemptions under
                            Section 27156 of the Vehicle Code

                           Cleaire Advanced Emission Controls
                                 Flash and Match System

Pursuant to the authority vested in the Air Resources Board (ARB) by Section 27156 of
the Vehicle Code; and

Pursuant to the authority vested in the undersigned by Sections 39515 and 39516 of the
Health and Safety Code and Executive Order G—45—9;

IT IS ORDERED AND RESOLVED: That installation of the Flash and Match diesel
retrofit system, manufactured by Cleaire Advanced Emission Controls of 14775 Wicks
Boulevard, San Leandro, California 94577, has been found not to reduce the
effectiveness of the applicable vehicle pollution control system, and therefore, the Flash
and Match system is exempt from the prohibitions in section 27156 of the Vehicle Code
for installation on heavy—duty vehicles equipped with 1993 through 1998 model—year
Cummins M11 diesel engines.

The Flash and Match system consists of a low NOx rebuild calibration, replacement fuel
injectors, and an oxidation catalyst. The system components exempted under this
Executive Order are identified in Attachments A, B, and C.

This exemption applies to the engines and low NOx software calibrations Cummins has
identified in its "Low NOx Rebuild Calibration Listing." In addition, the exemption is only
valid provided that the following conditions are met: (1) the replacement fuel injectors
are Cummins ReCon PX injectors remanufactured to meet Cummins‘ original
equipment manufacturer specifications and (2) the oxidation catalyst is identical to the
catalyst used in Cummins‘ 2001 model—year original equipment manufacturer ISM bus
engines.                                                                                    '

This exemption is based on the emission data submitted by Cleaire Advanced Emission
Controls and an engineering evaluation of the impact the system has on emissions.
Based on the test results and evaluation of the system components, it was conciuded
that the Flash and Match system will not adversely affect the exhaust emissions of the
heavy—duty vehicles equipped with any of the engines listed above.

This Executive Order is valid provided that installation instructions for Flash and Match
system do not recommend tuning the vehicle to specifications different from those of the
vehicle manufacturer.


                                             _7

Changes made to the design or operating conditions of the Flash and Match system, as
exempt by the ARB, which adversely affect the performance of the vehicle‘s pollution
control system, shall invalidate this Executive Order.

Marketing of the Flash and Match system using identification other than that shown in
this Executive Order or for an application other than that listed in this Executive Order
shall be prohibited unless prior approval is obtained from the ARB.

This Executive Order shall not apply to any Flash and Match system advertised, offered
for sale, sold with, or installed on a motor vehicle prior to or concurrent with transfer to
an ultimate purchaser.

This Executive Order does not constitute any opinion as to the effect the use of the
Flash and Match system may have on any warranty either expressed or implied by the
vehicle manufacturer.                          —

No claim of any kind, such as "Approved by the Air Resources Board," may be made
with respect to the action taken herein in any advertising or other oral or written
communication.

In addition to the foregoing, the ARB reserves the right in the future to review this
Executive Order and the exemption provided herein to assure that the exempted add—on
or modified part continues to meet the standards and procedures of California Code of
Regulations, Title 13, Section 2222, et seq.

THIS EXECUTIVE ORDER DOES NOT CONSTITUTE A CERTIFICATION,
ACCREDITATION, APPROVAL, OR ANY OTHER TYPE OF ENDORSEMENT BY THE
AIR RESOURCES BOARD OF ANY CLAIMS OF THE APPLICANT CONCERNING
ANTI—POLLUTION BENEFITS OR ANY ALLEGED BENEFITS OF CLEAIRE
ADVANCED EMISS!ION CONTROL‘S FLASH AND MATCH SYSTEM.

Violation of any of the above conditions shall be grounds for revocation of this Executive
Order. The Executive Order may be revoked only after a ten—day written notice of
intention to revoke the Executive Order, in which period the holder of the Executive
Order may request in writing a hearing to contest the proposed revocation. If a hearing —
is requested, it shall be held within ten days of reéceipt of the request, and the Executive
Order may not be revoked until a determination is made after a hearing that grounds for
revocation exist.

Executed at El Monte, California, this      2*     day of January 2002.

                               EVALUATION SUMMARY

Manufacturer Name: Cleaire Advanced Emission Controls

Name of Device: Flash and Match and Flash and Catch Diesel Retrofit Systems

Background:
      Cleaire Advanced Emission Controls (Cleaire) of 14775 Wicks Boulevard, San
Leandro, California 94577 has requested exemption of its Flash and Match and Flash
and Catch diesel retrofit systems from the prohibitions in section 27156 of the California
Vehicle Code (VC). The systems are designed for use on 1993 through 1998 model—
year Cummins M11 heavy—duty diesel engines. The exemptions apply to the engines
and low NOx software calibrations Cummins has identified in its "Low NOx Rebuild
Calibration Listing." In addition, the exemptions are only valid provided that the
following conditions are met: (1) the replacement fuel injectors are Cummins ReCon PX
injectors remanufactured to meet Cummins‘ original equipment manufacturer (OEM)
specifications; (2) for the Flash and Match system, the oxidation catalyst is identical to
the catalyst used in Cummins‘ 2001 model—year OEM ISM bus engines; and (3) for the
Flash and Catch system, the filter is Engelhard Corporation‘s DPX Catalyzed Soot Filter
or Johnson Matthey‘s CRT Particulate Filter exempted by the ARB and is used only on
engines that meet the operating conditions (i.e. particulate matter emission level, NOx
to PM ratio, engine exhaust temperature, and diesel fuel sulfur level) specified by
Engelhard Corporation and Johnson Matthey.

Recommendation:
      Grant exemption to Cleaire as requested and issue Executive Orders D—535 and
D—535—1.                                                                     |

Device Description:
       Cleaire‘s Flash and Match and Flash and Catch systems are exhaust emission
control devices designed primarily to reduce oxides of nitrogen (NOx) and particulate
matter (PM) emissions from diesel engines. It also reduces hydrocarbon and carbon
monoxide emissions from diesel engines. The Flash and Match system consists of re—
programming of the electronic control module (ECM), replacement fuel injectors, and a
diesel oxidation catalyst. The Flash and Catch system consists of the same ECM re—
program and replacement injectors but instead of the catalyst includes a diesel PM filter.
The system components are identified in Attachments A, B, and C of Executive Orders
D—535 and D—535—1.

        The ECM re—program is identical to the calibration change required under
 Cummins‘ Consent Degrees with the United States Environmental Protection Agency
 (U.S. EPA) and the Air Resources Board (ARB). The calibration retards fuel injection
‘timing to reduce NOx emissions during highway operations. The low NOx software
calibrations and the applicable engines are identified in Cummins‘ "Low NOx Rebuild
Calibration Listing" (Attachment A). The replacement infectors are Cummins ReCon PX
injectors, remanufactured to meet Cummins‘ OEM specifications. The catalyst is
manufactured by Engelhard Corporation and canned by Fleetguard Nelson. It is
identical to the catalytic muffler used in Cummins 2001 model—year OEM ISM bus
engines. The catalyst measures 9.5 inches in diameter and 12 inches in length is


       identified by Cummins part number 3926265 and Fleetguard Nelson part number
       27112.

                The PM filters used in the Flash and Catch system include Engelhard
       Corporation‘s DPX Catalyzed Soot Filter and Johnson Matthey‘s CRT Particulate Filter.
       Both filters are passive, continuously regenerating cordierite wall—flow filters. The DPX
       filters are exempted under Executive Orders D—384—5, D—384—6, and D—384—7, and the
       CRT filters are exempted under Executive Order D—393—3. Exemption of the Flash and
       Catch system is valid provided that the engines meet the following conditions: (1) the
       engines were originally certified to meet a PM emission standard of 0.10 grams per
       brake—horsepower—hour or lower; (2) the engine exhaust temperature is greater than or
       equal to 225° C (DPX filter ) or 275° C (CRT filter) for 40 to 50 percent of the duty cycle;
       (3) NOx to PM ratio is at least 8 (CRT filter) ; and (4) the engine is operated using dxesel
       fuel with a maximum sulfur content of 50 parts per million by weight.

       Discussion/Basis for the Recommendation:
               The ECM calibration change has already been evaluated and approved by the—
       U.S. EPA and the ARB under the Consent Decrees. Under the Consent Decrees,
       Cummins is required to ensure that the calibration results in lower highway NOx
       emissions (steady—state emissions) and does not cause any increases in emissions for
       all other regulated pollutants. The replacement fuel injectors are remanufactured to
       meet Cummins OEM specifications, and the oxidation catalyst is identical to the one
       certified on Cummins 2001 model—year new ISM bus engines. To further demonstrate
       that the systemhas—no adverse impact on emissions, Cleaireconductedchassis
       dynamometer emission testing with the Flash and Match system. Comparison of
       baseline and modified emissions during Urban Dynamometer Driving Schedule showed
       that the Flash and Match system does not have any significant adverse impact on the
       vehicle‘s transient emissions.
               Cleaire did not provide any emission data for the Flash and Catch system.
       However, based on the emission results of the Flash and Match system and based on
       the ARB‘s previous evaluations of PM filters, it was concluded that replacing the catalyst
       with a PM filter would not result in any adverse emission impact. As a result, it is
       concluded that the Flash and Match and Flash and Catch systems meet the
       requirements for a VC 27156 exemption for the engines listed in the Executive Order.
