Louisiana Clean Fuels Asks for your Nominations for the Katry Martin Award

Awards Ceremony to be held November 5, 2020 at the LCF 20th Anniversary Gala and Annual Clean Fuel Leader Awards
Nominations due: Friday, September 4th

Every two years, LCF honors one person whose kindness, positive attitude, and passion for alternative fuels sets them apart from their peers. The award's namesake, Katry Martin, served as the Executive Director of St. Landry Parish Solid Waste. Under his leadership, St Landry Parish was the first landfill in Louisiana to successfully commission, operate and monetize Environmental Attributes. While many others talked about the merits of carbon offsets, St. Landry Parish planned and executed. Additionally, St. Landry Parish was one of the first to build, own and operate a Renewable Natural Gas (CNG) Project at the landfill. This project is the template for smaller RNG (CNG) Projects on a global basis. Katry was revered for being a visionary who was also able to take his ideas and put them into practice.

LCF awarded Katry and St. Landry with the Innovative Project award at our 15th Anniversary Celebration in 2015, something that he was extremely proud of. Anyone who met him knew him to be a kind, humble, and passionate man who was responsible for dreaming up and making St. Landry's groundbreaking RNG facility a reality. Katry passed away on October 10, 2017, after a brief battle with cancer. The Katry Martin Award serves as a chance for LCF to honor his legacy and recognize his contributions to alternative fuels. 

LCF is asking for nominations of one individual in Louisiana whose character and contribution to Clean Cities, alternative fuels, petroleum and/or emissions reduction honors the legacy and spirit of Katry Martin.

Note: Louisiana Clean Fuels staff are not eligible for this award.
