We turn waste into value
Every industry sector that generates streams of liquid waste within its operation must deal with related cost and environmental challenges. The Vilokan Group transform these streams into sources of revenue and wells of improved operations control. Where others see waste, we see value.

When an airplane is de-iced our work of recovering the valuable raw materials takes off.
The Vilokan Group assist airports across the globe to process their used de-icing fluid and reduce their environmental impact and related cost, purify the water and recycle the glycol. We close the circle of the cycle and create a profitable business.

Follow the profitable flow from runway to runway
As much as 1,000 litres of glycol, often with a variety of chemical additives, can be used to de-ice a single plane. With over 30 years of experience, we tailor solutions using a range of well-proven techniques to purify water and recycle precious raw materials.

The main methods applied to the airports used de-icing fluids are:
– Ultra-filtration
– Evaporation
– Distillation

Value through purification
What most people once considered to be waste is now viewed as potential raw material. These are the most frequent valuables we extract from airports is:
– Recycled Glycol
– Ethanol
– Clean process water

Wide range of benefits
Our process recycles valuable commodities resulting in tangible benefits. We can close the loop by mixing purified water and recycled glycol into new, ready to use, de-icing fluid. Minimizing waste, cost and significantly reducing the need for heavy transport.
– Closed loop
– Re-use of recycled raw material
– Commercial revenue of recycled material
– Minimizing waste disposal costs

Commercial product
The Vilokan Group helps its customers to re-use recycled materials where possible, or otherwise reprocess them into new products for market, having both chemical production, sales, and distribution within the group.

Some local and regional airport are better served using a joint venture and a shared Vilokan installation. We close those loops too, recycling deicing fluids from runway to runway.
