New Report Shows Benefits Frontline Communities Receive from Advanced Diesel Technology

Posted by Rypos on Oct 22, 2020 6:30:00 PM

The Port of Long Beach is committed to improving air quality and reducing the impact of goods movement through their port. To facilitate this, the Port conducts an annual inventory of air emissions from port-related sources to track progress for improving air quality and reducing health risks to surrounding communities. The Port's current findings show that the introduction of new generation diesel trucks has generated substantial clean air benefits for communities located near their freight facilities compared to previous levels.

The current emissions inventory released from the Port of Long Beach demonstrates the impact of introducing the latest clean diesel technology contributed towards substantial air quality improvements for communities located near freight facilities. In 2019, trucks serving the Port generated only 7 tons of fine particle (PM 2.5) emissions, a significant reduction from the nearly 200 tons produced in 2005. This reduction is despite a 14 percent increase in cargo volumes and largely due to the introduction of new technology diesel trucks.

The Port of Long Beach - Clean Trucks Program, instituted jointly by the Ports of Long Beach and Los Angeles, requires that all trucks meet the latest tailpipe emissions standard for PM 2.5 and new trucks entering service in the port as of 2018 must meet the near-zero tailpipe emissions standard for ozone-forming compounds (NOx) as well. According to the latest data, 90 percent of the estimated 14,000 port trucks entering and exiting marine terminals in southern California are powered by diesel and about 65 percent are of the latest generation diesel technology. The remaining ten percent are primarily natural gas-powered vehicles. This is significantly better than California state, where only 36 percent of trucks are the latest generation diesel.

This newly published data demonstrates the impact the turnover of the latest generation diesel technology can have on frontline communities located near freight facilities as well as the states and regions across the country.

Sen. Ed Markey Proposes "Green Infrastructure" Package

Posted by Rypos on May 26, 2019 1:00:00 PM

A senator key to infrastructure and trucking policy negotiations on Capitol Hill has proposed modernizing the country’s transportation grid via green-centric initiatives.

Through a so-called green infrastructure package, Massachusetts Sen. Ed Markey (D), a member of the trucking and surface transportation panels, is calling on colleagues to reduce energy consumption, incorporate climate change science into transportation projects and expand the affordability and availability of electric and energy-efficient vehicles.

The senator also proposes investments in new energy-efficient schools, improvements in drinking water and reducing emissions at airports, ports and waterways.

Any deal on an infrastructure package must include measures to promote our clean-energy economy and mitigate the dangers posed by climate change.
