Unmatched in treatment wetlands expertise, Naturally Wallace Consulting (NWC) engineers work with the environment to treat unique and complex wastewater streams. With treatment wetlands and patented Forced-bed AerationTM technology at the core, we push the boundaries of 'ecological engineering' to design long-term solutions that combine the science of natural systems with advanced engineering practices.
The use of glycol- and acetate-based chemicals during airplane deicing creates a variety of environmental compliance challenges. Deicing operations result in large quantities of contaminated runoff that is extremely variable in both flow and load. NWC engineers have worked with facility managers at a number of airports around the world to solve this problem, including Heathrow Airport in London, and airports in Buffalo, New York and...
