Reducing Emissions from Goods Movement via Maritime Transportation in North America

Update of the Mexican Port Emissions Data

Description

The present update of Mexico’s port emissions estimates was derived from a joint effort between the Secretaría de Medio Ambiente y Recursos Naturales (Semarnat) and Eastern Research Group, Inc. (ERG), in the context of a project undertaken by the Commission for Environmental Cooperation (CEC).

The basis for this work was an unpublished CEC report entitled, Inventario Nacional de Emisiones de Fuentes de Area 2008 (National Emissions Inventory for Area Sources) (CEC 2011), which was produced to support the development of Mexico’s National Emissions Inventory. More recent marine engine and cargo handling equipment (CHE) emissions data were identified and applied to the Mexican CHE and vessel data provided by Semarnat to generate a more up-to-date and comprehensive port emissions inventory. A revised Mexican port inventory was developed for 2011, with projections to 2030.
