North Dakota Clean Cities (NDCC) aims to reduce the impact of fuel and vehicle emissions on our community’s environment and health.
Designated on August 10, 1998, in a ceremony at the University of North Dakota, North Dakota Clean Cities is now managed by the American Lung Association. The U.S. Department of Energy renewed NDCC’s designation in 2008 and 2020. NDCC is a grassroots educational effort supported by stakeholders that include fuel and equipment providers, fleet managers, public utilities, technical experts, non-profit organizations and automakers, as well as private citizens.
NDCC helps industry partners raise awareness of Clean Air Choice fuels among consumers and fleet operators. Utilizing ethanol, biodiesel, electricity and other cleaner fuels and engine technologies is an essential step to improve air quality, cut carbon emissions and support economic development in North Dakota.
