The Environmental Achievement award from Airports Council International-North America, which we announced back in September, was presented to the Port at the annual ACI-NA conference in October. The award acknowledged Portland International Airport, Seattle-Tacoma International Airport, and Spokane International Airport for a joint project with Boeing, Alaska Airlines, Washington State University, and Climate Solutions to evaluate opportunities associated with developing a renewable aviation fuels industry in the Pacific Northwest. Here’s a picture from the award ceremony, with the Port’s aviation director Steve Schreiber in the center. And don't miss great coverage of this project in the Idaho Statesman.
