Port Launches Clean Truck Program

The Port of Seattle and the Puget Sound Clean Air Agency have launched a truck scrapping and replacement program.

Called ScRAPS 2 (Seaport Truck Scrappage and Replacements for Air in Puget Sound), the program’s goal is to help truckers calling on Port of Seattle terminals to have model-year 2007 or newer engines, or meet 2007 federal emissions standards, which are aimed at reducing air pollution from port-related activities.

ScRAPS is partially funded by federal and state grants, and is expected to provide up to $20,000 to owners who scrap old drayage trucks and replace them with trucks with model-year 2007 or newer engines. The current level of funding will provide incentives for approximately 180 trucks. This project is expected to run through mid-2015, or until funds are depleted.

Last year, the ports of Seattle, Tacoma and Metro Vancouver pledged to reduce diesel particulate matter (DPM) by 75 percent and greenhouse gas emissions by 10 percent, per ton of cargo, by 2015, according to the ports’ updated Clean Air Strategy. Both air pollution reduction targets use 2005 levels as a baseline.
