Ports of Seattle, Dalian Partner On Green Initiative

port_of_seattle.jpgThe Port of Seattle and the Port of Dalian, China have agreed to partner with other public and private sector companies on an EcoPartnership to make port terminals and infrastructures more environmentally sustainable.

The partnership will last at least three years and will include examinations of marine terminal planning, construction management, liner development, railway transportation, oil spill response technologies and more. It also calls for a possible pilot project in China and the U.S. that includes other EcoPartnership members.

The port and its partners say they have already taken a number of steps to improve environmental performance in Seattle’s harbor, including: use of a biodiesel/ultra low sulfur diesel blend in cargo handling equipment; extensive use of biodiesel in Port maintenance equipment; and development of the Northwest Ports Clean Air Strategy.

Other participants in the EcoPartnership include: The City of Tacoma, Tacoma Public Utilities, Pacific Northwest National Laboratory, the Puyallup Indian Tribe and SSA Marine.
