Air Quality


Air Quality at the University of Alaska Fairbanks

UAF is committed to protecting the air quality for those who live, work and play near our campus.

We are working to reduce emissions that may affect air quality in the Fairbanks area.  

We are also building diversity by installing solar panels and using natural gas in our heat and power plant.

At UAF, we generate our own heat and electricity at the campus power plant.  This cogeneration provides a more efficient use of our resources.

UAF is working to construct a new power plant with lower emissions and the ability to burn biofuels . For more information:
