  • Airport deicing effluent treatment and regulatory guidelines

    Airport and airplane deicing is employed with the use of brines, salts, alcohols or glycols to remove and prevent or delay the formation of snow and ice.  In the United States (US), the Federal Aviation Administration requires airlines that operate during icy conditions to perform deicing and anti-icing of aircraft and airfield pavement (USEPA 2011a).  These deicing operations use large ...

  • VSEP recycles airplane deicing fluid, protects the environment and provides eight month payback

    New Logic has developed a unique membrane filtration system for treatment if all types of glycol based fluids. The objective is to recover as much glycol as possible and to remove contaminants and particulates added by usage. The process involves use of New Logic’s proprietary V✧SEP (Vibratory Shear Enhanced Process) vibrating membrane filtration system. Glycols have many uses including ...

  • Crossflow Membrane Applications for Glycol-based aqueous solutions

    Introduction This document is a guide for water treatment engineers to better understand crossflow membrane applications for glycol-based aqueous solutions. It includes glycol applications we have sold equipment for, applications we have successfully tested, and applications we have not tested but are expected to be technically feasible. Glycol-based solutions are commonly used by a ...

  • 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 ...

  • 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 ...

  • Home, Sweet Wastewater Building

    How can a wastewater treatment plant embedded into a neighborhood not use much landmass and be environmentally friendly and user-friendly all at the same time? One system aims to do all of the above. Why should a wastewater treatment plant always have to look like, well, a wastewater treatment plant?  A visual trip through project files of Aqueonics Inc., based in Greenville, SC, reveals photos ...
