The US Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) is taking the initial steps on the development of programs that will invest $4 billion from the Inflation Reduction Act in US port infrastructure. The Clean Ports Program will invest $3 billion in technologies to reduce harmful air and climate pollutants at US ports and create a zero-emission shipping future. The Clean Heavy-Duty Vehicle Program will invest an additional $1 billion to reduce vehicle emissions and better protect the health of the people living and working near ports, schools, and other truck routes. EPA is now seeking public input to inform the development of two new programs.
