KTRK GOING GREEN
TRUCKEE, CA / May 4, 2021/ AVIATION NEWS / SUSTAINABLE AVIATION FUEL- KTRK is the first general aviation airport in the region to make sustainable aviation fuel (SAF) available for jet, turbine and diesel powered aircraft, significantly reducing greenhouse gas emissions and aligning with the airport’s sustainability goals.
In an effort to expand the reach of SAF throughout the industry and reduce greenhouse gas emissions in the region, Avfuel Corporation and Truckee Tahoe Airport District (KTRK)—an Avfuel-branded fuel provider—have partnered to provide a consistent supply of the fuel to the Truckee aviation community.
“Truckee Tahoe Airport District has long practiced good stewardship with its community, helping to protect our serene environment,” said Kevin Smith, KTRK general manager. “As such, the airport has implemented a Greenhouse Gas Reduction initiative, which now includes SAF—the most effective way to directly reduce emissions. We are proud to partner with Avfuel on this initiative, doing our part to help make the world a cleaner place and our industry realize its carbon emission reduction goals.” For more information visit ➤ Avfuel Press Release
