Port's Air Quality Improvements Explored Through VideoOn the Go Video team explores how the Port of Long Beach’s clean-air efforts achieved dramatic across-the-board reductions in air pollution, including a 72 percent decline in diesel particulates.

The air quality improvements mark the fourth straight year of significant pollution reductions from the ships, trucks, locomotives, forklifts, tugboats and other equipment that move cargo at the Port.

The Port-funded study showed that from 2005 to 2010, all of the key air pollutants from port-related sources were reduced.

The Emissions Inventory is conducted to monitor progress with implementing the San Pedro Bay Ports Clean Air Action Plan, which was adopted in 2006 and updated in 2010 by the Long Beach and Los Angeles harbor commissions.
