Port of Los Angeles preliminary awarded $41 million dollars from California Air Resources Board to launch Zero Emissions Hydrogen-Fuel-Cell-Electric Freight Project.

Project will include 10 zero-emissions heavy-duty hydrogen fuel-cell-electric trucks, 2 new heavy-duty hydrogen fuel stations, and 4 zero-emissions cargo handling equipment. The total project cost for this initial phase is $82,568,872, with partners providing 50.2%, or $41,446,612 in match funding.

The Zero and Near Zero-Emission Freight Facilities Project -- proposed with support from Toyota, Kenworth, and Shell -- provides a large-scale "shore to store" plan and a hydrogen fuel-cell-electric technology framework for freight facilities to structure operations for future goods movement. The initiative will help reduce emissions by 465 metric tons of Greenhouse Gas and 0.72 weighted tons of NOx, ROG and PM10.  

The Zero-Emission and Near Zero-Emission Freight Facilities Project is part of California Climate Investments, a statewide initiative that puts billions of Cap-and-Trade dollars to work reducing greenhouse gas emissions, strengthening the economy and improving public health and the environment — particularly in disadvantaged communities.
