Technological Advancements to Reduce Mobile Source Emissions (P12-6396)
Through technology innovation and regulation, our air is cleaner than it has been in many years, yet the amount of pollution generated from transportation sources is still substantial and poses a serious health threat. In some areas, such as Southern California, emissions generated by mobile sources (such as marine vessels, trains, planes, trucks and heavy-duty construction equipment) exceed 80 percent of the total air pollution. States and local communities have begun to do what they can to cut back on pollution from mobile sources by integrating new technologies that either reduce or prevent emissions. This presentation will explore current efforts and technologies that are being implemented or tested to reduce emissions from transportation sources such as cars, trucks, marine vessels, locomotives and other freight movement technologies.
