Stormwater treatment strategy for the degradation of aircraft deicing fluid at the Joint Base Elmendorf-Richardson in Anchorage, Alaska
Due to the large volumes of aircraft deicing fluids (ADF) applied by U.S. commercial airports during winter months, stricter pollution control by regulatory agencies has been implemented. Agencies such as the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), have made several attempts to improve stormwater management practices in airports which has resulted in a decrease of the discharge volumes of ADF contaminated water. However, many U.S. airports continue to explore and develop new strategies to reduce contaminant concentrations to meet the benchmark concentrations required to comply with discharge ...
