Tacoma-based Targa Sound Terminal earns Chamber environmental award

The Tacoma-Pierce County Chamber awarded its annual Tahoma Business Environmental Award to Targa Sound Terminal during a luncheon Friday at the Pacific Grill Events Center in downtown Tacoma. The award aims to recognize the efforts of local businesses that strive to meet a high standard of excellence for environmental preservation and protection.

According to Tacoma-Pierce County Chamber officials, Targa Sound Terminal, a bulk liquid and petroleum logistic service provider with roots in the South Sound that date back to the 1960s, offers renewable biodiesel blends, as well as low-emission ultra-low sulfur diesel to local tugs and fishing vessels, and supports local farmers by supplying Washington grown and produced canola biodiesel. Last year, the company started blending EPA emission control area fuel for Port of Tacoma businesses.
