SSA Marine, which operates three container terminals at the Port of Long Beach, has become the first terminal operator at the port to transition its fossil-fueled cargo-handling equipment fleet to renewable diesel fuel.
Fully integrated market-leading system enables medium speed diesel engines to meet IMO III, Stage 5 and EPA regulations.

Over the coming week, member states must agree on how shipping will concretely reach the 40 percent climate reduction target by 2030, which is part of the IMO’s climate strategy.
Black Trail is an agenda-setting collaborative investigation into the environmental impacts of the shipping industry — a sector that is all but untouchable as it receives eye-watering subsidies and stashes its profits in tax havens, all the while polluting with impunity.
The action with the most significant positive impact for the environment is to supply the energy needs of moored ships with green electricity, instead of diesel engines, or to switch ships to alternative, more environmentally friendly fuels, which would reduce emissions by up to half.
72% of shipowners and charterers said they were yet to set emissions reduction strategies and 15% admitted to not knowing where to start
A greener, more efficient rudder system, designed at the University of Strathclyde, will be demonstrated as part of a €6 million EU-funded research project.
