Sustainability News 'Green Omni Terminal' Zeros Out Emissions Pasha Stevedoring and Terminals L.P. and the Port of Los Angeles are launching the Green Omni Terminal Demonstration Project, a full-scale, realtime demonstration of zero and nearzero emission technologies at Pasha's 40-acre marine terminal. At full build-out, Pasha will be the world's first marine terminal able to generate all of its energy needs from renewable sources. The Port of Los Angeles terminal handles general, project and heavy-lift cargoes of all shapes and sizes, including breakbulk commodities such as steel and containerized cargo, making it the ideal laboratory for developing zero-emission solutions for many industries. As part of the project, Pasha will integrate a fleet of new and retrofitted zero-emission electric vehicles and cargo-handling equipment into its terminal operations and demonstrate the latest generation of advanced technology for capturing ship emissions from vessels unable to plug into shore power at berth. Project implementation started in June with the final design and construction of a solar-powered microgrid that includes solar generation, battery storage and an energy management system to maximize usage. The total cost of the project is $26.6 million. It is funded by a $14.5 million grant from the California Air Resources Board for reducing greenhouse gases and other pollutants. Pasha has also committed $11.4 million in cash and in-kind participation. NWSA Scraps 200th Truck The incentive program at the Ports of Seattle and Tacoma helping drayage truck owners purchase newer, loweremission trucks, recently replaced its 200th truck. The Seaport Truck Scrappage and Replacements for Air in Puget Sound 2 is a joint program of The Northwest Seaport Alliance and Puget Sound Clean Air Agency to reduce diesel particulate emissions in the region. It supports the NWSA Clean Truck Program's target for all port-bound trucks to have model year 2007 or newer engines by Jan. 1, 2018. Trucks with engines built after 2007 emit 10 times less particulate pollution than older ones. The PSCAA and NWSA estimate that taking 200 older trucks off Puget Sound roads will result in an annual reduction of 9 tons of diesel particulates and 114 tons of oxides of nitrogen. ScRAPs 2 reimburses eligible truck owners for part of the cost of a new truck and demolishes and recycles the We're gaining momentum toward being the world's leader in transportation education at the Transportation Institute at the University of Denver (DTI), thanks in part to DTI board member Jeff Heller, who serves as VP of Intermodal and Automotive for Norfolk Southern. Jeff keeps us on track to teach best practices and the latest innovations in transportation.
