ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (KRQE) – An Albuquerque company will have a chance to reduce its business emissions. They are receiving funding from the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) Diesel Emissions Reduction Act (DERA) to work towards that goal.
The environment department is giving more than $434,000 to Acme Iron and Metal to switch one of its pieces of equipment from diesel to electric power.
