While the number of snow events in North America declined 68 percent from the same period in 2010 and was well below the ten-year average, our highway deicing sales volume was only 17 percent below the 2010 quarter because of strong customer demand to establish pre-season stockpiles and the benefit of above-average sales in the U.
The objectives of this research are to: (1) update and enhance the content of ACRP Report 14 to reflect the current technologies, practices, and regulatory drivers associated with aircraft and airfield pavement deicing, focusing on new technological and regulatory developments and guidance on methods for assessing the long-term performance of BMPs at an individual airport; and (2) update and enhance the content of ACRP WOD 3 in light of the suite of aircraft and airfield pavement deicers currently in use in the North American market.
Aircraft deicers perform both functions and are equipped with one, two or three tanks which carry either pre-mixed deicing fluid or pure glycol and water which can be mixed by the operator depending on the prevailing weather conditions.
