The Port of Long Beach (PoLB) and the Port of Los Angeles (Port of LA) today released the final 2017 San Pedro Bay Ports Clean Air Action Plan (CAAP) Update, intended to set the two San Pedro Bay ports on a path toward zero-emissions operations.

The final version of the document brings together comments and changes from a version released in July and is scheduled to be considered for approval in a joint public meeting of the two ports' harbour commissions on November 2.

The 2017 CAAP Update document, fact sheet and responses to comments are available here.

In July, PoLB, in partnership with the Port of LA, released a request for proposals for demonstrations of technologies to upgrade tugboats, crew boats, barges, and other harbour craft to cleaner engines in order to support the ports' goal toward zero-emissions.
