PHA COM. 7.26.2016-6.jpg

The Port Commission of the Port of Houston Authority has authorized an interlocal agreement with Harris County to receive environmental grant funding under the Harris County Local Initiative Project at a public meeting Dec. 12.

The project is funded by the Texas Commission for Environmental Quality, obligating the port to provide equal matching funds towards the program.

The grant funding furthers the efforts of the port’s Clean Air Strategy Plan in achieving its local match to reduce diesel air emissions due to port-related activities.

The project will help eliminate approximately 12,000 kilograms of nitrogen oxide and other emissions.

Port Houston’s Clean Air Strategy Plan strives to reduce real and sustainable maritime and port-related emissions. The multi-source, multi-pollutant program has found economically feasible ways and means to achieve emission reductions throughout the port area.

The grant will assist in the purchase of 528 industrial outlets, which will be installed in a location where refrigeration (reefer) trucks park.
