American Commercial Lines Inc. (ACL), a U.S. marine transportation service company, was presented with Environmental Achievement Awards by the Chamber of Shipping of America (CSA) at a reception held Wednesday, November 13 in Washington, D.C. A total of 74 of ACL’s fleet of 100 towboats were recognized by CSA for their environmental records. 

CSA represents U.S.-based companies that own, operate or charter ocean-going tankers, containers ships, or dry bulk vessels in domestic or international trades. The organization has been presenting Environmental Achievement Awards since 2004 to recognize vessel and shore-side personnel for good stewardship of the marine environment and to increase public awareness of the marine transportation industry’s excellent record of environmental accomplishment. This year, 1,431 vessels owned or operated by 76 companies received awards totaling 10,282 years of environmental excellent operation.

Vessels eligible for the award must have at least a two-year period of no reportable spills; no U.S. Coast Guard citations for violations of MARPOL, an international marine environmental convention; no port state citations for violation of MARPOL; and no violations of state/local pollution regulations.
