  • Monitoring Total Carbon for straightforward management of runoff from de-icing episodes at airports

    During winter operations vast areas of airport runways, taxiways, and aprons are cleared of ice and snow using acetate type chemicals and airplane wings are de-iced with glycol based antifreeze. During these seasonal de-icing episodes the runoff water suddenly becomes heavily contaminated with organics and needs to be diverted to a treatment/recovery plant or holding ponds. Total Carbon (TC) is ...
