Albany International Airport is recognized as a world leader in developing cost-effective environmental management of aircraft deicing fluids.

To comply with environmental statutes, the airport has installed a state-of-the-art Storm Water Recovery and Treatment Facility that utilizes micro-organisms to "digest" propylene glycol to below detection limits.

The process produces methane gas, which is reused as fuel to heat the incoming fluid and to speed its processing. The gas is also used to heat the treatment facility.

Noise Abatement

The Albany International Airport has undertaken a vigorous noise program, which involves the voluntary purchase of impacted properties within the affected area. The airport makes those properties available for suitable users as part of an economic development program.
