  • Sub-surface flow wetlands to treat glycol-contaminated stormwater from aircraft de-icing operations, Batea

    Airports use glycol-based aircraft de-icing fluids (ADFs) for removing ice and snow from aircraft surfaces during winter and under frost conditions. Some relatively concentrated, spent ADF (Concentrate) may be collected from beneath aircraft for recycle or disposal at a local wastewater treatment plant (WWTP), but a significant part of the ADF at everyairport will end up in sewers and ditches, be ...

  • Cleveland hopkins int`l airport de-icing drainage layer, Cleveland, OH

    The Presto Geosystems Geoweb® Load Support System was utilized for a 1.3 million sq ft. de-icing area at the Cleveland Hopkins Airport. The system serves as a construction support platform over marginal subgrades and a highly-permeable structural drainage layer for the 30-acre de-icing site. Confinement in the interconnected cells stabilizes aggregate so it can handle the heavy loads of ...

  • In situ Remediation of 1,4-Dioxane using Electrical Resistance Heating

    An increasing number of states are establishing enforceable 1,4-dioxane cleanup goals due to recent improvements in analytical detection methods and existing carcinogenic risk information for 1,4-dioxane. Historically, 1,4-dioxane was used as a stabilizer for chlorinated solvents, primarily 1,1,1-trichloroethane. In addition, 1,4-dioxane has been used in a broad range of products including but ...

  • Putting the surface microphone through its paces at Airbus

    Thirty-odd years later, the A380 – the widest commercial airliner available today with seating for 525 passengers – will be entering into service. It is another testament to Airbus’ commitment to innovation and intelligent design. Therefore, Airbus came to Brüel & Kjær for the development of a transducer they could invariably use to measure sound pressure in ...

  • Gatwick airport - A case study

    These new systems included de-icing equipment and bird control and dispersal equipment. GATWICK has used SCARECROW vehicle based systems since 1985, regularly upgraded as our technology developed, so it was no surprise to be asked to demonstrate ULTIMA and to install two V3 systems in May 2010. We are grateful to Andy Crabb, Airside Operations Manager for providing this Case Study. Paul ...

  • Wastewater Mining and Reuse: Creating Benign Future Scenarios

    Wastewater mining: In addition to being perhaps the most uninviting combination of words, it sounds like a most unlikely idea. But for almost 30 years, Aqueonics, now headquartered in Greenville, SC, has pioneered such systems, starting in the ’80s, with its first wastewater mining project. For that project, Aqueonics provided an onsite or decentralized treatment system for a developer in ...
