The Port of Long Beach and the Long Beach Container Terminal were presented the Clean Air Award by the South Coast Air Quality Management District in early October for the Middle Harbor redevelopment project. The Clean Air Awards have several categories to recognize individuals, government entities, nonprofits and businesses. Past honorees have led to the development of clean air technologies and forward thinking policies to improve quality of life for residents. “Our commitment to environmental stewardship is unwavering and is manifested in all aspects of the facility — from the world’s largest battery exchange building to our fully electrified cranes,” said LBCT President Anthony Otto in a statement. “We will continue to work with our partners in making Middle Harbor a model for the industry.” The Middle Harbor will handle two times the amount of cargo as the previous terminal, while cutting air emissions by more than half once it is complete.
