LA in Bright Light Green Scheme


In a bid to address the long-term issue of light pollution at both the Port of Los Angeles and the Port of Long Beach, Georgia-based firm Bright Light Systems are to supply a new form of LEP plasma technology that promises to cut energy consumption by 50%.

PTI previously reported Portsmouth International Port spending around US$1.5 million on solar-panel technology in an effort to reduce its carbon footprint.

In the Press Telegram, Brad Lurie, CEO of Bright Light Systems, said of the new technology: “With plasma, you can tell the difference between a prison guard and an inmate. It’s full HD, full colour.”

Light pollution is not the only form of pollution affecting the environment as the recent US West Coast port shutdown led to container ships pumping diesel fuel into the ocean after they were unable to connect to shore power.

The broader implications of pollution have also been seen in the arctic region where pollution levels are anticipated to rise by 600% in 2025.

Despite such claims, the International Chamber of Shipping is confident that environmental performance will remain positive with the backing of IMO regulations.
