The Port of Long Beach and Port of Los Angeles are soliciting proposals for new technology to reduce at-berth emissions for non-container vessels, such as tankers, vehicle carriers, bulk and general cargo ships.

As explained, at-berth air pollution from container ships is already greatly curtailed by the use of shore power, as the ports have invested nearly $400 million in dockside power hookups and other relevant infrastructure.

The request for proposals by the ports, under their Technology Advancement Program, offers $1 million -$500,000 from each port- to fund demonstrations of one or more cost-effective technologies that can eliminate at-berth emissions from ships that don’t fall under the state’s shore power mandate. Proposers must provide at least a 50% match to the project cost. Proposals are due by 27 February 2018.

Large ships are the leading source of port-related emissions. Cutting pollution from vessels is a key strategy in the San Pedro Bay Ports Clean Air Action Plan (CAAP), adopted in 2006 and recently updated. The update calls for up to a 100% reduction in at-berth emissions from container and non-container vessels by 2030.

Compared to 2005 levels, the Plan has helped reduce diesel particulate matter up to 88%, sulfur oxides by 97%, nitrogen oxides by 56% and greenhouse gases 22%.
