Noise monitoring for airport noise

by ACOEM     based in Limonest, FRANCE

Air traffic is the source of several forms of disturbance to the surrounding area, including, in particular, noise pollution. Local residents in the vicinity of an airport are the most severely affected and are very conscious of the aircrafts` flight paths and the impact on their day-to-day living conditions.

Emissions Monitoring for Airports

by Opsis AB     based in Furulund, SWEDEN

Opsis systems provide high-performance monitoring of the emission activities within an airport. The rapid system allows on-line monitoring of the emissions from each aircraft at take-offs and landings, monitoring of fugitive emissions from stationary sources and differing of the airport sources from the surrounding pollution sources.

Airport Environmental Monitoring

by Chelsea Technologies Group     based in West Molesey, UNITED KINGDOM

Water pollution from airport run-off is increasingly coming under public and government scrutiny. As environmental regulations tighten, the ability to monitor for aviation fuel contamination from runway run-off has become essential.

Monitoring sites at airports can be extremely challenging often with no power or telephone lines available and with limited access for maintenance. Chelsea’s robust UviLux Hydrocarbon Sensor with its low power consumption and high accuracy is ideally suited for this application. Installed at various locations around the airport, deployed with it’s own integrated anti-biofouling system, utilising the GSM network, the monitoring sites send data to a secure ftp site, where any internet enabled device can access the data. In this way the systems act as any early warning system allowing any hydrocarbon discharge to be detected in real-time.

Optional environmental monitoring features include remote control to allow the user to turn equipment on and off, change the sample rate and detection range. There is also a facility to allow SMS text and email alarm notifications triggered by user-defined set-points together with customised web pages, data displays and automated data downloads via an ftp server.

Airport runoff can contain high concentrations of various pollutants, in particular polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons (PAHs) and polychlorinated biphenyls (PCBs), the environmental levels of which have to be monitored. An understanding of the magnitude of contamination due to airport runoff water is important for the effective management of airport infrastructure. Chelsea’s robust UviLux Hydrocarbon Sensor with its low power consumption and high accuracy is ideally suited to the airport environment.

Fence line monitoring around an industrial site or airport

by AQMesh     based in Stratford-upon-Avon, UNITED KINGDOM

Monitoring the potential escape of pollutant gases from industrial sites or from airports can be difficult to achieve due to changing weather conditions, which may require a large number of monitoring stations downwind of the escapes.

Aircraft De-icing Fluids in Wastewater

by AnoxKaldnes AB - a Veolia Water Company     based in Lund, SWEDEN

Spent aircraft de-icing fluid is a major pollution con­cern at airports especially in areas with severe winter climates. AnoxKaldnes and Veolia Water Solutions & Technologies can combine our experience in both past and present projects to develop a solution to minimize these concerns, whether it is at a local on-site treatment facility or in conjunction with a local municipal WWTP.

Geosynthetic Lining for Highway and Civil Applications

by CETCO     based in Hoffman Estates, ILLINOIS (USA)

GCL can be used in highway and civil applications such as at airport de-icing facilities used to remove ice build up on the surfaces of planes. During the application process, glycol-based de-icing fluids can leak into local stormwater runoff, potentially causing pollution. CETCO GCLs were found compatible with de-icing fluid (glycol diluted 50/50 with water). GCLs can also be used to line roadway drainage swales for containment and prevent excessive percolation, thereby minimizing potential for groundwater contamination. Another example of using GCL in civil and highway applications is using the liner to contain acid rock and prevent runoff from entering the local water supply.
