        一家独立咨询机构制作了一份年度排放清单,点此查看。除了减少柴油污染,研究还发现长滩港在减排上的积极举措使雾状氮氧化物(smog-forming nitrogen oxides)的排放量从2005年下降56%。硫氧化物下降97%,温室气体下降16%。
        “我们正在见证长滩港和物流行业的辛苦付出带来的成果,我们向全世界展示了可持续物流是可行的,”长滩港口管理委员会(Long Beach Harbor Commission)主席邦妮·洛文塔尔(Bonnie Lowenthal)表示,“为实现零排放运营的终极目标我们还要做很多,不过我对于达到目标很有信心。”
        “即使从2005年以来货运量上涨21%,我们仍然减排很多,”长滩港常务董事马里奥·科尔德罗(Mario Cordero)表示。“与合作伙伴取得了如此成就令我们倍感自豪,不过我们并不满足于此。长滩港现有所有项目价值1.5亿美元,均是为了净化空气。这其中包括8千万资金捐助,用于在港口运营中示范零排放设备和先进的能源系统。”
        开展排放清单研究的目的是衡量、跟踪“清洁空气行动计划”(Clean Air Action Plan)的总体进展,并确保港口始终处在实现减排目标的轨道上。该研究在码头运营商和其他企业的帮助下,计算了在该港口作业的所有船舶、卡车、机车、港口作业船和堆场设备所产生的污染总量。美国国家环境保护局、加州空气资源委员会(California Air Resources Board)和南海岸空气质量管理区(South Coast Air Quality Management District)对研究结果进行了评估。
Port of Long Beach Cuts Diesel Pollution 87%
The Port of Long Beach’s clean-air efforts have continued dramatic reductions in air pollution, including an 87% cut in diesel emissions, according to the latest comprehensive study.
The annual emissions inventory conducted by an independent consultant is available here. In addition to diesel particulates, the study found the Port’s aggressive actions to curtail pollution have decreased smog-forming nitrogen oxides by 56% since 2005. Sulfur oxides were down 97% and greenhouse gases are 16% lower.
“We’re seeing the results of the hard work by the Port and the goods movement industry, and we’re showing the world that sustainable cargo movement is possible,” said Long Beach Harbor Commission President Bonnie Lowenthal. “There’s work to be done to get to our ultimate goal of zero-emissions operations, but I’m confident we will get there together.”
While emissions remain dramatically lower than they were in 2005, the Port-funded study for 2018 found a small increase in diesel particulates and greenhouse gas emissions from the previous year’s inventory. The 2017 inventory measured an 88% decrease in diesel particulates and an 18% reduction in greenhouse gases compared to the 2005 baseline year. Port officials attributed the change to record throughput of 8.1 million twenty-foot equivalent units in 2018.
“We’ve accomplished these reductions even while container traffic has risen 21% since 2005,” said Port of Long Beach Executive Director Mario Cordero. “We are proud of what we’ve done in cooperation with our many partners, but we’re not finished. The Port is managing $150 million in projects all across our port, all in the name of cleaner air. This includes $80 million in grant funding to demonstrate zero emissions equipment and advanced energy systems in Port operations.”
The purpose of the emissions inventory is to measure and track the overall cumulative progress of Clean Air Action Plan measures and ensure the Port is on track to meet emission reduction goals. The study calculates the amount of pollution coming from all the ships, trucks, locomotives, harbor craft and yard equipment working at the Port, with the help of terminal operators and other businesses. The results are reviewed by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, the California Air Resources Board and the South Coast Air Quality Management District.
