Port of Oakland to Curb Fleet Truck Diesel Emissions to Comply With Lawsuit Settlement

January 19, 2004

The Port of Oakland announced on Jan. 14, 2004, a new initiative to reduce air pollution around the port, reports The Oakland Tribune newspaper. Port officials are working to address vehicle emissions and other problems in the terminal area in order to comply with a lawsuit settlement requiring reductions in pollution.The new program will offer grants to truckers who buy newer, cleaner-burning diesel trucks, and also to outfit at least 250 trucks with diesel oxidation catalysts. Port officials elected to earmark money for retrofits and upgrades after discovering almost half the vehicles servicing the terminals had engines of 1994 or earlier vintage.
