The Port of Oakland approved its Maritime Air Quality Improvement Plan (MAQIP) in 2009. The MAQIP included goals for substantial reductions in criteria pollutants, most notably an 85% reduction goal in diesel particulate matter over 2005 levels to reduce excess cancer health risk in the nearby West Oakland community. This tour will highlight strategies that enabled the Port to surpass its emissions reductions goals in 2020, and new strategies set forth in its Maritime Air Quality 2020 & Beyond Plan – the Pathway to Zero Emissions. The tour also includes a site visit to see Class 8 battery-electric trucks, electric top-picks, and associated charging equipment.
