AAAE Aircraft and Airfield Deicing and Stormwater Issues Webinar

Two sessions covering the soon-to-be issued EPA Effluent Limitation Guidelines proposed rule,

AAAE invites you to be a part of the 2009 AAAE Airports Energy Efficiency Forum. Based in last year’s success, AAAE is putting together the 2nd Annual Airports Energy Efficiency Conference, to take place in Seattle, WA on November 16-18, 2009. This year’s forum promises to be even bigger and better than 2008's!
Helping airports figure out how to employ the latest strategies and best practices to minimize/eliminate energy waste and optimize operations is the number one goal for this conference. “Going green” isn’t just a buzzword; it can also save you money and resources.
This forum will address basic ways that airports can save up to 30% with minimum investments: increase efficiency through the use of low-cost technology and equipment, improve facility design and efficiency, improve energy-related operations and maintenance, recommission facilities and controls for optimum comfort and energy use.
