Air Emissions Inventory for the Port of New York and New Jersey

The inventory does not include emissions from activities linked to the various marine terminals that are entirely privately owned and operated, as they are not under the aegis of the Port Authority in any way. For example, there are various fuel and oil depots situated along the Arthur Kill/Kill Van Kull waterways and the emissions from vessels calling at these terminals are not included in this inventory. This inventory also does not include emissions linked to the Port Authority’s non-maritime facilities, such as airports, bridges and tunnels.

On-road transport associated with warehouses and auto marine terminals, which follow processing of the marine cargo with freight from other sources, are secondary in nature and are considered part of the regional traffic structure and are therefore not included in the inventory.

All air emissions inventories and related studies can be found on the Port Authority Environmental Initiatives webpage. Learn more about criteria air pollutants and how they can harm your health and the environment on
