The Port of Long Beach and its tenant Long Beach Container Terminal (LBCT) have received a Clean Air Award for working to reduce pollution in Southern California with the Middle Harbor redevelopment project.
The award from the South Coast Air Quality Management District falls in in the category of Business Leadership in Air Quality Achievement recognizes outstanding effort to advance effective solutions to the problem of poor air quality in the region.
Once complete, Middle Harbor will handle twice the amount of cargo as the previous terminal while cutting air emissions by more than half. The first phase opened earlier this year.
"We’re building the Green Port of the Future, and Middle Harbor is a big part of that," said Harbor Commission President Lori Ann Guzmán. "The terminal is the world’s greenest and most sustainable. We are deeply honored to be recognized along with LBCT."
