POLA Shows Emission Reduction

SAN PEDRO — The Port of Los Angeles’ Inventory of Air Emissions, released Aug. 22, shows the port is at its lowest level in harmful emissions since it implemented a plan to reduce them about seven years ago.

The Inventory of Air Emissions is a report of test results based on harmful emissions through port operations. Reporting is done annually and compared with results from 2005 through the present time of the findings.

The results of the port’s 2012 Inventory of Air Emissions show a 79 percent reduction in diesel particulate matter since 2005. It also showed emissions related to moving 10,000 20-foot containers were 81 percent lower than they were in 2005.

Sulfur oxide emissions have fallen to 6 percent from 25 percent in 2005 and nitrogen oxide emissions have dipped to 3 percent from 5 percent in 2005. The port’s nitrogen oxide emission reduction has already exceeded 2014 expectations.

2012 has seen the largest percentage drop in harmful emissions than any other year since reporting has been done in 2005.
