POLB Accomplishes “Greenest Port in the World”

[ November 5, 2015   //   ]

The Port of Long Beach announced in October that it has surpassed every air pollution reduction milestone set for 2014 due to air quality improvement programs, including cleaner diesel trucks, low sulfur fuel, and the increased use of shore power for ships.

According to an annual emissions survey, the port has reduced diesel particulates by 85% since 2005, nitrogen oxides (NOx) by 50% and sulfur oxides by 97%.  These reductions surpassed the goals established under the San Pedro Bay Ports Clean Air Action Plan, according to Long Beach Port and community officials.
