Motors, Vehicle, and Vessels

Internal combustion engine (ICE) motors, vehicles and vessels are major sources of pollution through their emissions as well as through the leakage of fuels, oils and lubricants. 

EGLE is committed to reducing these sources of pollution from motors, vehicles and vessels by allocating resources towards sustainable mobility, decarbonizing travel, and ensuring all Michiganders have access to clean transportation options.
