California state agencies and local governments continue to enforce strict environmental regulations aimed at reducing air pollution caused by greenhouse gases, diesel particulate matter and volatile organic compounds. Ships, trucks, trains and other heavy machinery operating in and around the Ports produce close to 40% of the diesel particulate matter in the Los Angeles basin.
At PortTech Los Angeles, we are looking for entrepreneurs with clean air technology solutions that will help our partners at the Ports meet environmental regulations. In particular, we are interested in technologies that reduce diesel emissions, diesel particulate matter, nitrogen oxides and sulfur oxides.
For entrepreneurs, PortTechLA's partners also provide great opportunities to test new clean air technologies in the Ports' tough environment. Several current clients have successfully tested their technologies with Port partners and are now launching their businesses with proven technologies, positive testimonials and potential customers lined-up.
