EPA Air Study

Port Everglades is the first seaport in the United States to voluntarily enter a partnership agreement with the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) to study air emissions in a seaport scenario.Through this partnership, the EPA and Port Everglades agreed to work together to develop baseline and future year emission inventories and to evaluate various effective technology and operational strategies.

In 2017, Port Everglades reached a major milestone with the completion of the 2015 Baseline Air Emissions Inventory, which includes emissions from ocean-going vessels,
harbor vessels, cargo handling equipment, on-road vehicles, and rail operations.

Ship Regulations

The Port Tariff, the rule book that guides all vessel operations at the Port, prohibits certain ship activities that discharge pollutants into the air. For example, shipboard incineration is forbidden while ships are in port.
