Large amounts of waste are generated at airports – onboard aircraft, in catering kitchens, at the restaurants, in the shops and in the administrative offices. Dense air traffic requires fast, efficient waste handling, while also observing a number of safety regulations. The Envac vacuum system meets all requirements.
In the winter months aeroplanes, runways and landing strips are de-iced with the help of chemicals resulting in the pollution of storm water. Consequently, its disposal may have an extreme impact on waste water treatment plants or public water. Hence, the continuous monitoring of this storm water is of special importance.

Compared with traditional manual refuse collection methods, an automated kitchen waste system is safer, more efficient, more hygienic – and cheaper in the long run.
