Air Emissions Inventory at the Port of Montreal

The Montreal Port Authority is carrying out an inventory of the air emissions linked to its activities. This study, which is being done in collaboration with Transport Canada, Environment Canada and Green Marine, will establish an inventory of all emission sources related to cargo handling equipment and to rail, truck, ship and tug activity. The inventory will cover major air contaminants, greenhouse gases and certain toxic particles. This project is part of Green Marine’s larger effort to strengthen the maritime industry’s environmental performance, and the methodology used by the Port of Montreal will be provided to other ports and terminals that are Green Marine participants. The inventory is scheduled to be completed by March 2009.
