Port executive director Michael J Giari reported that IMI, since the start of its lease, has increased the tonnage of bauxite handled at the port.
So far in fiscal year 2016, bauxite imports total 68,000t, compared to 52,000t in all of FY 2015. IMI has provided environmental mitigation for dust emissions by tarping material and wetting truck load-out areas. There is also a new provision regarding storm water management.
The Port of Redwood City experienced a 2% decrease in cargo movement across its docks for the first half of FY 2015/2016, which ended on 31 December 2015. Total tonnage for all commodities during the first half of FY16 was 858,944t.
Imported sand and aggregates accounted for 623,176t, or nearly 73%, of the tonnage for the first half of the fiscal year. This was nearly 10% less than the same period last fiscal year.
