Public invited to weigh in on clean truck assessment

Study addresses feasibility of alternative drayage truck technology for the ports of Los Angeles and Long Beach.

 
   The public is invited to comment on a draft feasibility assessment of clean truck technology the ports of Los Angeles and Long Beach say they need to reach the goals of the Clean Air Action Plan (CAAP).
   The draft assessment — released Tuesday and the first under the 2017 CAAP Update — examines the current state of technology, operational characteristics, economic considerations, infrastructure availability and commercial readiness relating to cleaner drayage trucks.    Comments will be accepted through Jan. 23.
   The updated CAAP established goals of zero-emissions trucks by 2035 and zero-emissions terminal equipment by 2030. As part of this strategy, the ports committed to developing feasibility assessments every three years for drayage trucks and terminal equipment to determine a path toward meeting those goals. A draft terminal equipment assessment is expected to be released in early 2019
   Comments on the drayage truck assessment may be emailed to caap@cleanairactionplan.org.

   The 2017 CAAP Update contains a comprehensive strategy for accelerating progress toward a zero-emissions future while protecting and strengthening the ports’ competitive position in the global economy. Since 2005, port-related air pollution emissions in San Pedro Bay have dropped 87 percent for diesel particulate matter, 58 percent for nitrogen oxides and 97 percent for sulfur oxides, according to the Port of Long Beach.
   Targets for reducing greenhouse gases (GHGs) from port-related sources were introduced as part of the 2017 CAAP. The document calls for the ports to reduce GHGs to 40 percent below 1990 levels by 2030 and 80 percent below 1990 levels by 2050. The CAAP was originally approved in 2006, the port said.
exports. Trade that flows through the San Pedro Bay ports complex generates more than 3 million jobs nationwide

If the U.S. is going to plug and play and take on the [TPP] standards, I think that would be fairly easy.

U.S-flagged Great Lake freighters moved 3.1 million tons of cargo in January, a 110 percent year-over-year increase and 44 percent above the month's five-year average.
