Airport operators are realizing winter operations improvements after constructing a centralized deicing facility (CDF). A CDF provides air traffic controllers and airlines a dedicated location on the airfield for safe, efficient, and environmentally friendly aircraft deicing operations. This complimentary on-demand Lunch & Learn webinar discusses the planning and design considerations when an airport operator prepares for a deicing facility.

A CDF may be planned and designed while considering four key elements: (1) siting and geometry,; (2) glycol distribution and collection; (3) environmental friendliness; and (4) smart pad technology. The presenters in this program will discuss these elements in further detail, providing their background on several large CDF projects in recent years.


At the end of this ACC Lunch & Learn webinar, participants will be able to:
• Identify the key components to layout the geometry of a CDF.
• Summarize the glycol distribution and collection systems on a CDF.
• Explain the considerations for management of glycol on a CDF.
• Recognize how technology can enhance efficiency at a CDF.
