MUTTENZ, SWITZERLAND: Clariant International Ltd is presenting its global de/anti-icing products encompassing aircraft deicing and anti-icing fluids and liquid and solid runway de/anti-icers. These are produced at numerous sites in Europe, North America and Japan to ensure fast local supply. Europe's widely-used deicing fluid is Clariant's Safewing MP I 1938 ECO (80), followed by Safewing MP II FLIGHT and Safewing MP IV LAUNCH.

When de-icing is surrounded by dedicated drains, 60-80 percent of used fluid can be collected and distilled to commercial purity. According to an independent study, recycling is proven to cut de-icing's carbon footprint by 40-50 percent.

"Snow- and ice-free runways and aircraft wings are vital for safe and efficient winter operations. Local supply security for de-icers is therefore key for our customers. They're also looking for cost-efficiency and being able to lower environmental impact. With the IATA forecasting a record of four thousand million scheduled passengers in 20172, we offer a sustainable product portfolio, secure global supply and fast delivery, backed by high level on-the-ground technical support, to help the industry address its challenging requirements," said Dennis Mistreanu, head of aviation business EMEA Clariant.
