The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and Broward County’s Port Everglades (PEV) signed a partnership agreement (see link at bottom of page) in 2016 to study air emissions in a seaport scenario to inform sustainable development. Through this partnership, EPA and PEV agreed to work together to develop baseline and future year emission inventories and to evaluate various effective technology and operational strategy scenarios for seaports.
