Emissions Reduction Project

Location: Washington: Greater Puget Sound region

EPA is providing a $100,000 grant to the Puget Sound Maritime Air Forum, with $310,000 in matching funds. This project will create an activity-based inventory of all maritime-related air emission sources in the Greater Puget Sound region. This project will then promote the use of control technologies like diesel oxidation catalysts, cleaner fuels like ultra-low sulfur diesel and biodiesel, and public education activities such as idle reduction programs for truckers and equipment operators at the seaport to reduce overall emissions.
