The California Air Resources Board (CARB) invites you to
participate in public workshops to discuss staff’s draft concepts
to amend the existing Airborne Toxic Control Measure for
Auxiliary Diesel Engines Operated on Ocean-Going Vessels At-Berth
in a California Port (At-Berth Regulation). At these workshops,
staff will discuss the Ships At-Berth Regulation, a recent update
to the inventory of vessel emissions, and our preliminary ideas
for changes to the regulation.  These changes are intended to
improve implementation, simplify requirements and enforcement,
and increase the community health benefits of the existing CARB
regulation by requiring more vessels to reduce emissions.  

The workshops will be held at the locations and dates shown
below.  Both workshops will follow the same format and present
the same material.  

Date:		Monday, August 28, 2017
Time:		1:00 pm – 5:00 pm

Background:  CARB adopted the At-Berth Regulation in 2007 to
protect public health by controlling oxides of nitrogen (NOx),
and particulate matter (PM) emissions from diesel auxiliary
engines on container ships, passenger ships, and
refrigerated-cargo ships while berthing at a California Port. 
The At-Berth Regulation provides two options to reduce at-berth
emissions: 1) turn off auxiliary engines and connect the vessel
to some other source of power, typically shore based grid power
(shore power), or 2) use an alternative control technology that
achieves equivalent emission reductions.
