ThermoEnergy, Contego Systems join forces for more efficient deicing

  • 29-Sep-2010 11:30 EDT

ThermoEnergy Corp., a supplier of wastewater recovery technology and systems, has formed a strategic alliance with Newark, NJ-based Contego Systems. Contego Systems provides complete, U.S. EPA-approved aircraft deicing services to more than 30 airline companies located at major airport hubs around the U.S. Contego's deicing process uses a spray solution of glycol. Once the deicing process is completed, Contego collects the excess deicing fluid from the surface of the ground using specialized vacuum equipment. Under the new alliance with ThermoEnergy, Contego will use ThermoEnergy's CASTion Aircraft Deicing Fluid Recovery System to recover and recycle 98 to 99% purity glycol from the collected fluid. ThermoEnergy's proprietary CAST (Flash Vacuum Distillation) technology is a physical-chemical process that uses temperature and reduced pressure to separate water from glycols and then separate the glycols from their additive packages.
