Storm Water Treatment
ABX Air spent over $12 million implementing a state-of-the-art subsurface storm water treatment facility, the first of its kind at an airport in the U.S. At cold climate airports, de-ice fluid is required to treat aircraft and runways for safe operations in winter weather. The subsurface water treatment facility captures and treats storm water run off that may contain de-icer to ensure that any water released into the environment meets Ohio EPA water quality standards.
Recycling programs at ABX Air include:
- Aluminum Cans
- Corregated cardboard

- Plastic bags
