Metro Ports

Green initiatives

Metro Ports is a strong advocate and industry leader in environmental stewardship. We have invested in modifying our cargo handling equipment to significantly lower our carbon footprint through use of alternative fuels and emissions controls. We meet all California Air Resources Board (CARB), Air Quality Management District (AQMD), and Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) requirements.

In addition, Metro Ports has invested in and supported the testing and evaluation of prototype devices to help control ship stack emissions and has implemented dust controls for the dry-bulk cargos we handle.

Our environment initiatives include:

Implementing a new state-of-the-art Ultra Low Emission Locomotive at our Pier G Bulk Terminal in the Port of Long Beach. Some of the savings and advantages we expect are an 80% reduction in NOx and PM emissions, a 50-65% improvement in adhesion efficiency, and a 50-60% reduction in fuel consumption. To complete the greening process, the older unit that we replaced has been permanently taken out of service.

Metro participated with Advanced Cleanup Technologies Incorporated (ACTI) to develop a system called the Advanced Maritime Emissions Controls System (AMECS). This system captures vessel emissions at the ship stack using a bonnet, vents the gas to a scrubber unit which then treats the emissions. Initial testing showed a 90% reduction in all exhaust constituents analyzed.
