Using less chemicals
Airpro is pioneering in reduction of pure propylene glycol consumption in de-icing mixers, leading to signifigantly lower environmental burden.
On the winter season 2022-23 96% of Airpro’s de-icing operations were performed with mixed Type I fluid. Thanks to this, the consumption of environmental burdening pure propylene glycol has been significantly lower.
In order to reduce the environmental load even further, Airpro has acquired a double-mix feature for its emission friendly e-Beta de-icing units in Helsinki airport. The feature allows not only mixing Type I, but also mixing of Type IV fluid.
At the same time, Airpro is surveying the possibility of starting to use mixed Type IV fluid also at regional airports. With this and future investments in de-icing equipment, Airpro will reduce the amount of pure propylene glycol used by dozens of tons per year.
