Advantages of Conducting Port Emissions Inventories

EPA Webinar: June 7, 1:30-3:00 p.m. EDT

Hear from Professionals that have Conducted Emission Inventories

Join this U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) Ports Initiative webinar to hear directly from professionals who have conducted inventories of mobile source emissions at their ports, and the positive outcomes they have experienced as a result. You will also have a chance to ask questions of these professionals to help you plan for the next (or first) emissions inventory at your port. Webinar materials will also include links to EPA resources for conducting port emissions inventories.

Learn more about:

  • Why ports may wish to conduct criteria pollutant and/or greenhouse gas emissions inventories;
  • Beneficial outcomes from completing an inventory, including how it can help prepare a port for grant opportunities that prioritize project sustainability and environmental justice;
  • The range of scope and complexity for emissions inventories; and 
  • EPA’s Ports Initiative program efforts to accelerate adoption of cleaner technologies and planning practices to address diesel emissions at ports across the country.

Speakers and panelists:

  • Alejandra Núñez (Deputy Assistant Administrator for Mobile Sources, EPA's Office of Air and Radiation)
  • David Breen (Manager, Environmental Air Quality, Energy, & Noise, Port of Portland)
