Transitioning to Zero-Emission Freight Transport Technologies Symposium

South Coast Air Quality Management District
San Joaquin Valley Air Pollution Control District
California Air Resources Board
U.S. Environmental Protection Agency

April 10-11, 2013, 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.
South Coast AQMD, Auditorium
21865 Copley Drive, Diamond Bar, CA 91765

Criteria pollutant and greenhouse gas emissions from freight transport related mobile sources are significant contributors to California’s air quality and climate change challenges.  Meeting federal ambient air quality standards and California’s climate change goals will require technology transformation on all levels.  As such, innovative freight technologies development, demonstration and deployment must be accelerated over the next several years. 

This two-day symposium will include freight technology industry experts to stimulate an open and frank discussion of opportunities, challenges, and implementation timelines for promising zero- and near-zero emission technologies in the following vehicle and equipment categories: on-road trucks and yard hostlers, line-haul freight locomotives, cargo and other on-port vehicles and equipment, and marine vessels.
