A new study of air pollution at the Port of Long Beach has found an 88% reduction of diesel soot and a 19% decrease in greenhouse gases emissions compared to 2005.
The impacts of climate change on our businesses, communities and environment are increasingly apparent and need to be addressed decisively. For this reason, the Port of Seattle urged for a continued progress toward securing enactment of a statewide Clean Fuels Standard by advancing E2SHB 1110.
The US EPA has awarded the Port of Baltimore $1.8 million in Diesel Emissions Reduction Act (DERA) funds to replace older diesel-powered equipment with newer, cleaner versions. The grant will cover about 44 dray trucks, commonly used for transporting shipping containers to and from the Port.
The Port of Los Angeles, Toyota, Kenworth, and the California Air Resources Board took the next step towards the future of zero-emission trucking, presenting fuel cell electric heavy-duty trucks. The Port of Los Angeles will develop the project in numerous phases, incorporating initiatives in Southern California, the Central Coast Area, and Merced County.
The Port of Long Beach has implemented aggressive goals for zero emissions goods movement. The 2017 Clean Air Action Plan Update set the Port of Long Beach on the path to zero-emission goods movement, with a target of transitioning terminal equipment to zero emissions by 2030 and on-road trucks by 2035.
The Port of Long Beach has received preliminary approval for a $50 million grant from the California Air Resources Board for the Sustainable Terminals Accelerating Regional Transformation Project, a transformative demonstration of a near-zero and zero-emissions supply chain at US’ second-busiest port.
The Ports of Los Angeles and Long Beach are offering seed money to foster the development of new goods-movement technologies that will improve air quality, as part of the ports’ Technology Advancement Program. The Ports’ TAP is focused on clean technologies specifically for maritime related mobile sources that operate in and around ports.
