                             EXECUTIVE ORDER D—535—1

                              Relating to Exemptions under
                           Section 27156 of the Vehicle Code

                          Cleaire Advanced Emission Controls
                                Flash and Catch 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 1S ORDERED AND RESOLVED: That installation of the Flash and Catch 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 Catch 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 Catch system consists of a low NOx rebuild calibration, replacement fuel
injectors, and a particulate filter. 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 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.

This exemption is based on the emission data submitted by Cleaire Advanced Emission
Controls and an engineering evaluation of the impact the systems have on emissions.
Based on the test results and evaluation of the system components, it was concluded
that the Flash and Catch 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 Catch
system do not recommend tuning the vehicle to specifications different from those of the
vehicle manufacturer.

            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

         CLEAIRE ADVANCED EMISSION CONTROLS
           FLASH AND CATCH SYSTEM — D—535—1


                                    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 infectors are Cummins ReCon PX
    injectors remanufactured to meet Cummins‘ original equipment manufacturer (OEM)
    specifications; (2) for the Flash and Maitch 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) specifiedby
    Engelhard Corporation and Johnson Matthey.

    Recommendation:
-       — Grant exemption to Cleaire as requested and issue Executive Orders D—535 and
    O—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 injfectors 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 injectors 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 fiters 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 diesel
       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 catalystis identical to the one
       certified on Cummins 2001 model—year new ISM bus engines. To further demonstrate
       thatthe system has no adverse impact on emissions, Cleaire conducted chassis
Mess




       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 s:gmflcant adverse impact on the
       vehicle‘s transient emissions.
               Cleaire did not prowde 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.
