Wilson Air Centers First To Offer Titan Carbon Offset Program

New Bern, NC – TITAN Aviation Fuels is pleased to announce the launch of their Carbon Offsets Program available through the TITAN FBO network. The program is being offered in conjunction with Terrapass, one of the industry’s most respected environmental products organizations. Terrapass sources Green-e® Climate certified carbon credits that meet the highest standards in terms of quality and transparency.

The Titan Aviation Fuels Carbon Offsets Program currently supports the Crow Lake Wind Emission Reductions Project in South Dakota, a 162 MW wind project that hosts 108 wind turbines generating renewable energy and displacing fossil fuel-generated grid electricity.

The program will be offered throughout the TITAN FBO network where participating FBOs can offer the carbon offsets to their customers at the point of sale.

Additionally, TITAN is proud to announce that all four Wilson Air Center locations in Charlotte, Chattanooga, Houston, and Memphis will be the first in the TITAN network to offer the program.

“Wilson Air Center has always been centered around satisfying our customers’ needs and requirements, and we are pleased to continue serving them by taking this next step with our Carbon Offsets Program in order to help support our customers’ environmental initiatives,” said Bob Wilson, Owner, Wilson Air Center.

“We are very proud to offer this program through participating TITAN branded FBOs that will give flight departments a vehicle to help reach their corporate sustainability goals,’ said Robbie Stallings, President, TITAN Aviation Fuels.  “Wilson Air Center has always been an innovator and leader in the FBO market, and their decision to launch this program at their FBOs reinforces that mindset,” he continued.

Frequently Asked Questions:

  • A carbon offset is a certificate representing the reduction of one metric ton (2,205 lbs) of carbon dioxide equivalent (CO2e) emissions, the principal cause of climate change. 
  • If a project reduces carbon dioxide emissions, every ton of emissions reduced results in the creation of one carbon offset. 
  • Project developers can then sell these offsets to help finance current & future projects.
  • We fully address estimated carbon emissions of the fuel using the industry highest certification standards: Green-e® Climate.
  • Your purchase funds a portfolio of top-quality carbon reduction projects across North America including renewable energy.
  • The aviation industry is looking for ways to meet sustainability standards and regulations.  
  • New technology, infrastructure, operational improvements, and sustainable aviation fuels (SAF) will not eliminate carbon emissions immediately or completely.
  • Showcase your businesses’ environmental leadership by supporting US based sustainable projects that meet the industry’s highest standards.
  • TITAN Aviation Fuels Carbon Offsets Program provides a simple opt-in solution that can be added to your fuel invoice.
  • Yes. To ensure maximum transparency and accountability, every TITAN offset purchase is verified by an accredited and independent third party at the project level, when and where the offsets are being created. 
  • In addition, our total offset portfolio is subject to a separate periodic review by a different accredited and independent third party.
  • We only source carbon credits that meet the highest standards. Terrapass was the first carbon offset vendor to seek independent auditing of their purchases and marketing claims. 
  • Prior to adding a project to the Terrapass portfolio, they perform due diligence to fully understand the impact of each project. 
  • Once the project is in their portfolio they monitor and verify all the emissions reductions that are taking place. 
  • Most importantly, all projects in their portfolio must pass the “additionality” test. Additionality refers to the concept of whether your carbon offset purchase really brings about carbon reductions, or whether the reductions would have happened anyway. If the purchase of carbon offsets is a critical factor in making the reductions happen, the reductions are said to be “additional” to the business-as-usual case. 
  • By verifying and checking at each step in the process Terrapass is committed to making sure their projects are clearing the air.  
  • You can purchase your Carbon Offset Credits at the time you purchase your fuel at any of our four Wilson Air Center bases. 
  • TITAN’s Carbon Offset Credit Program is designed that 1 credit equals the carbon offsets of 1 gallon of fuel. For example, if you want to offset your entire trip and you purchased 100 gallons of fuel, you would purchase 100 Carbon Offset Credits.
  • Your Carbon Offsets are confirmed with an email that includes details of the transaction and a Certificate of Sustainability.
  • Carbon offsets are commonly considered a business operating expense like electricity or office rent.  You should consult your tax accountant.
  • TITAN’s Carbon Offsets supports the Crow Lake Wind Emission Reductions Project.  
  • This project consists of 108 wind turbines spanning 36,000 acres in South Dakota.                                                                                                                           
  • Your credits will automatically help support whatever project TITAN is currently working with Terrapass on.
