Improving Air Quality Through Effective Strategies

Similar to the approaches identified in the case studies, you can develop your own Clean Air Program that will help address diesel emissions at your own port. The following is an overview of effective strategies that can be taken to address diesel emissions for each maritime operation.

Ocean Going Vessels
Vessel Speed Reduction
Operational Improvements
Clean Fuels
Emission Control Technologies
Shore Power

Harbor Craft
 Engine Replacement with Engines 
   Meeting Cleaner Standards 
 Clean Fuels
