Document Description
The purpose of this activity is to fund the increase of deployment of heavy-duty natural gas powered Class 8 trucks used at the Ports of Los Angeles and Long Beach. This award will fund the purchase of 180 commercially available Liquid Natural Gas (LNG) gas trucks powered by state-of-the-art natural gas engines, to replace 180 conventional heavy duty diesel drayage trucks. The deployment of natural gas trucks will reduce greenhouse gas, NOx and PM emissions and the nation's dependency on conventional petroleum fuels. The U.S. Department of Energy is matching the award with $9,408,389 of American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009 funding.
