Cascade Sierra Solutions, a non-profit that developed clean air technology in trucks, is closing following a series of financial difficulties.
Cascade Sierra Solutions formed in 2006 and says it has saved truckers more than 67 million gallons of diesel fuel since. In 2009 the Environmental awarded the non-profit a $9 million dollar grant. Following an audit the EPA found the grant was misused and the company found itself unable to sustain operations. Loren Scott is CSS’s legal counsel. He says the non-profit’s board of directors is concerned about responsibly shutting down.
