|Name of eco-innovation demand||Sustainable solution for aircraft de-icing, or recycling the used liquid (business innovation)|
|Company / organisation||Budapest Airport Zrt.|
|Description of required eco-innovation / solution / technology / resource / knowledge / product / service||Budapest Airport Zrt is looking for an environmentally friendly solution regarding airplane de-icing.|
|Background||Budapest Airport Zrt has been developing its environmental performance for years.|
Search online for more details.
|Description of challenge to be solved||De-icing is operated by ground handler companies, however cleaning machines are operated by the airport operator, therefore a possible cooperation would be necessary in this case. Negotiations have already started as all ground handler companies present are members of the Greenairport program, the sustainable initiative of the airport. |
De-icing agents are compounds made up of chemical glycol and hot water, which we aim to switch to a more environmentally friendly material.
The technology already exists, however the challenge in this project is to transform it into a sustainable business solution.
Alternative solution would be to ‘swipe up’ the de-icing liquids from the apron area and recycle it to win back the glycol that could be used again.
|Preferred stage of development of solution||Preferred stage of development of the solution / technology: |
Technology readiness level (TRL): TRL 6 or above.
TRL 6. technology demonstrated in relevant environment (industrially relevant environment in the case of key enabling technologies);
TRL 7. System prototype demonstration in operational environment;
TRL 8. System complete and qualified;
TRL 9. Actual system proven in operational environment (competitive manufacturing in the case of key enabling technologies)
|Preferred form(s) of cooperation, collaboration||Open to negotiation|
|Language(s) of communication||English, Hungarian|
