Port of Baltimore Receives AAPA Environmental Award

Congratulations! The Maryland Department of Transportation (MDOT) Maryland Port Administration (MPA) has received the American Association of Port Authorities (AAPA) Award of Excellence for Environmental Mitigation for their Algal Flow-way Technology (AFT) project. AFT is a demonstration project constructed at the Helen Delich Bentley Port of Baltimore's Dundalk Marine Terminal that removes excess nutrient pollution and increases oxygen content in Baltimore Harbor. The Port of Baltimore handled a record 43.6M tons of cargo last year, including more than 11M tons of general cargo at the public marine terminals, and ranks first among the nation’s ports for volume of autos and light trucks, roll on/roll off heavy farm and construction machinery, and imported gypsum.
