San Leandro Company Cleans Up Bay Area Buses

More than 1,700 diesel buses in the Bay Area are being fitted with diesel exhaust purifiers from San Leandro-based Cleaire Advanced Emission Controls. In a press conference scheduled for 1:30pm on Tuesday, September 26, 2006, at Treasure Island, San Francisco Mayor Gavin Newsom will focus on the program that is cleaning up the exhaust from diesel buses. According to a press release from the Metropolitan Transportation Commission, "these high-tech emission control filters each year capture more than 50 tons of particulate matter and 436 tons of oxides of nitrogen, a precursor to ozone."

Cleaire Advanced Emission Controls is located at 14775 Wicks Blvd. in San Leandro, California.
