LA and Long Beach ports look to convert truck fleets to LNG
The two ports are now teaming up to request quotes for a liquefied natural gas truck program. Natural gas-powered trucks would have eighty to ninety percent less particulate and NOx emissions than the current diesel trucks. The two ports and the South Coast Air Quality Management board have committed $22 million dollars to assist operators with replacing trucks from before 1989 with new LNG powered trucks. This is particularly important since container traffic through the two ports is expected to double by 2020, meaning even more truck traffic through the gates.
