Our N.J. ports are a hub of commerce and require diesel power to operate the ships, tugboats, cranes, trucks, trains, planes and more….learn about the public and private efforts underway to reduce emissions at the ports.
South Jersey Port
The South Jersey Port Corporation (SJPC) is one of the oldest ports in the country and currently includes four terminals: Beckett Street (Camden), Broadway (Camden), Port of Salem and the new Port of Paulsboro (in the design stage).
NJDEP’s Diesel Risk Reduction Program is working with SJPC and its contractor, NESCAUM, to retrofit and re-power cargo handling equipment in Camden. Two cranes, two front-end loaders and two lift trucks have been or are scheduled to be re-powered. Additional equipment will receive retrofit devices. This project is funded with $500,000 of enforcement settlement money.
The Delaware River Port Authority (DRPA), the South Jersey Port Corporation (SJPC), and the Philadelphia Regional Port Authority (PRPA) have launched a Green Ports Initiative to identify strategies that will reduce the environmental impacts and improve the sustainability of their operations.
