Stockholm Skavsta Airport – recycling via an app

Since 2016, Vilokan ADF Solutions has an on-site presence in Stockholm/Nyköping at Skavsta Airport (NYO). Here the used de-icing fluid is gathered and cleaned. The concentration of the glycol is then increased in order for the recycling process to continue at one of Vilokan’s other facilities in Stockholm.

As the end-to-end solution involves transportation, Vilokan assumes full responsibility for this part of the process too. It is crucial that the logistics are adapted to ensure the best possible environmental and financial benefits both now and in the future. There were no other technical solutions on the market which met the level of optimisation that Vilokan aims to deliver. It therefore develops its own software.

Vilokan ADF Solutions has developed an app for airports that automatically informs when it is shortly time for collection. An order is generated and transportation is arranged. The app also has an integrated fluid quality control. Everything is monitored online from Vilokand’s head office in Strömstad.

"Previously 10,000 tons was disposed of. Now the glycol can be recycled instead!"

Swedish airport operator Swedavia, with 37.6 million passengers, is a leading player when it comes to environmental issues Vilokan now closes the cycle so that Swedavia can recycle and reuse valuable glycol.

"We are now global leaders in glycol recycling"

Montreal Pierre Trudeau Airport (YUL) has invested approx. 10 million CAD (approx. 65 million SEK) in a facility from Vilokan ADF Solutions. It will be operated by AeroMag 2000, who take care of the de-icing onsite.
