What is California’s “clean trucks” initiative?



  1. 0 Votes

    The Clean Truck program in California is an initiative, run by the Port of Long Beach and the Port of Los Angeles, to reduce emissions from the big polluters in the state: “ships, trains, trucks, cargo handling equipment and harbor craft.” The biggest part of the initiative is the banning of old trucks. By January 1, 2012, the plan is that “all trucks that do not meet the 2007 Federal Clean Truck Emissions Standards will be banned from the Port”. Already all trucks made before 1993 have been banned, and so have 1994-2003 trucks that have not been converted to more environmentally-friendly technology.

    There are many other parts of the program. Click the link below for some more information.
