The Ports of LA, Long Beach want to upgrade their harbor craft in order to make them 70% greener. They are offering 500K for advanced technology programs that would elevate their engine standards from Tier 2 to Tier 3 or 4. Currently, diesel run harbor craft contribute 18% of San Pedro Bay emissions. “We need more viable cost effective technologies, and as the Green Port, we’re going to leverage all of our tools to lead the goods movement industry to a more sustainable future,” said Heather Tomley, Port of Long Beach Director of Environmental Planning.
