arbcombo -- PUBLIC WORKSHOP TO DISCUSS DRAFT AMENDMENT CONCEPTS TO THE OCEAN-GOING VESSEL AT-BERTH REGULATION Posted: 01 Aug 2017 13:28:30
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 Location: Port of Los Angeles Administration Building 425 S. Palos Verdes Street San Pedro, California 90731 Date: Thursday, September 7, 2017 Time: 10:00 am – 3:00 pm Location: California Environmental Protection Agency Headquarters* Byron Sher Auditorium 1001 I Street Sacramento, California 95814 *The Sacramento workshop will be webcast for those unable to attend in person. The broadcast can be accessed on the day of the workshop at: https://video.calepa.ca.gov/. To view the public workshop notice, please visit the program website at: https://www.arb.ca.gov/ports/shorepower/shorepower.htm. Staff will also post the workshop presentation and any associated documents to this website before the workshop begins. If you have any questions about the workshop, please contact Mr. Jonathan Foster, Air Resources Engineer, at (916) 372-1512 or by email at email@example.com or Ms. Lynsay Carmichael, Air Resources Engineer, at (916) 327-5784 or by email at firstname.lastname@example.org. 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.
