Houston's Port Authority Earns Clean Air Award

The Houston-Galveston Area Council has presented awards to the authority four consecutive years.

The Houston-Galveston Area Council has again honored the Port of Houston Authority for actions taken to cut air emissions. The authority received the Clean Air Action Leadership Award as the Outstanding TERP (Texas Emissions Reduction Plan) Participant this year –- its fourth consecutive year to get an award from the council.

The Clean Air Action Program works to help the region become compliant with federal air quality standards for ground-level ozone pollution, and the champion designation and awards recognize businesses, governments, and other organizations that work to improve air quality.

Ben Finley, H-GAC senior air quality planner, said the Port Authority received the latest award because it is "massively over-producing on TERP and is about a year-and-a-half ahead of schedule on air emissions reductions."

Repowering RTG cranes, the M/V Sam Houston, and the Farnsworth fireboat and also replacing yard tractors with TERP grant funding made this possible.
