PortTech Forum: Reducing Oceanside Emissions

PortTech Forum: Reducing Oceanside Emissions - Highlights 

Following dockside successes of the ports' Clean Air Action Plan, including the TAP Clean Trucks Program, it's time to look at the other side of the pier for trends, opportunities, regulations and incentives for companies to reduce Diesel Particulate Matter (DPM) and nitrogen oxide (NOx) emissions on ocean-going vessels.

Ocean-going vessels are the single largest source of emissions in Southern California's goods movement and make up approximately half of all port-related air emissions. Since 2005, voluntary emission reduction programs have yielded substantial results. However, based on current forecasts, ports need additional emission reductions to meet goals established in the Clean Air Action Plan.
