Cleaner Growth For America's Largest Ports
The Ports of Los Angeles/Long Beach are responsible for approximately 10% of the Los Angeles basin's air pollution. "While the Port of Los Angeles is moving forward with 'cold- ironing,' powering ships by electricity while docked instead of low-grade, highly polluting diesel fuel, the Port of Long Beach is dragging its feet. Cold-ironing has the potential to significantly lower the amount potentially dangerous air particulates generated at the ports"
