Glycol recycling reduces the CO2 footprint

In the Vilokan Group, where Arom-Decor Kemi is part of the Fluids business area, there are innovative and well-proven environmental technologies that enable the purification and recycling of *de-icing fluid, among other waste streams. The de-icing fluid in this case is collected from Swedavia's ten airports in Sweden and two airports in Norway. The fluid is channeled and/or transported to the facility at Arlanda where the final purification process takes place. The method creates an eco-cycle of an otherwise finite resource and makes everyone winners. The facility at Arlanda extracts 5,000 tonnes MPG/year, which is the equivalent of 28,400,000 kg reduced Co2.

Recycled MPG can be used as a raw material in its final form or to produce new products, such as AdProLine® Maringlykol, AdProLine® Propylene IH VVS and AdProLine® KG Propylene IH.


Why MPG is recycled

DE-ICING PRODUCTS HAVE A MAJOR IMPACT ON THE ENVIRONMENT

  • Glycol is made from natural gas, which is a fossil raw material and is finite
  • Glycol consumes large amounts of oxygen during biodegradation
  • Degradation of glycol in nature can lead to lack of oxygen (anaerobic state) in the soil
  • Contamination of water bodies

EMISSIONS FROM 199,298 CARS/YEAR

Vilokan's facility at Arlanda reduces CO2 footprint/year equivalent to the emissions of 199,298 eco-friendly cars in one year.

In our calculation we have included both the degradation of used glycol and the CO2 footprint of newly produced glycol.

  • Biodegradation (whether in the soil or at treatment plants) = 1.68 kg of CO2/kg glycol.
  • New production of glycol from the fossil raw material natural gas = 4 kg of CO2/kg glycol.
  • Total: 5.68 kg CO2/kg.
  • An eco-friendly car with a curb weight of 1,372 kg may emit no more than 95 grams of carbon dioxide (CO2),
    which corresponds to 0.095 kg of CO2/km. A normal driving distance is about 15,000 km/year.

 

Here's how we've calculated
5,000 tonnes = 5,000,000 kg
5,000,000 kg x 5.68 kg CO2 = 28,400,000 kg CO2
28,400,000/0.095 kg/km = 298,947,368 km
298,947,368 km/15,000 km = 199,298 cars
