As many of our readers know, the Moving Forward Network has launched the Zero Campaign to require ports, rail yards and other freight facilities to meet clean air standards.
There is no need for ports and other freight facilities to threaten the health of their neighbors by emitting deadly diesel exhaust pollution, Clean technologies currently are available to eliminate the need to burn dirty diesel fuel, including electric and natural gas vehicles and equipment.
The Port of Honolulu and Sandia Labs have teamed up to test a true Zero Emissions approach – a 120 kilowatt electric fuel cell generator powered by hydrogen extracted from water by solar energy. Currently being used on shore to power refrigerated containers, the generators will soon be installed on barges used to deliver containers to Hawaii ports.
