We help airports control odours from wastewater and protect sewer assets more effectively.

While major airports have sizeable budgets for aspects such as runway upgrades and terminal expansions, new problems are cropping up that had never been anticipated. One of these is the now-close proximity of foot traffic to sewage assets, plus increased pressure on facilities to cater for more people. Put simply, more people means more waste, which means more odour and accelerated corrosion of assets.

Your challenges

Airports have seen steadily increasing passenger numbers over the past three decades, putting significant pressure on their assets.

Airports around the world are responding by upgrading runways, retail shops and terminal facilities without a corresponding investment in their sewerage infrastructure. This can lead to accelerated corrosion of sewerage assets and increasing odour issues.

As airports prepare for continued increases in traveller numbers, strategic maintenance of sewer assets will be a key factor in improving passenger experience and boosting the airport’s reputation.
