MONTRÉAL, QUÉBEC – FSM Management Group Inc. (FSM Group) announced today that it has been awarded a contract by Calgary Glycol Facilities Corporation (CGFC) to manage the design/build of a state-of-the-art glycol recovery, treatment, storage and recycling system and facilities in Calgary. FSM Group also provides administration services to the consortium of member airlines of CGFC. CGFC leases lands for the glycol recovery, treatment, storage and recycling facilities on behalf of the consortium member airlines.
The CGFC Glycol Recovery and Recycling Facility allows for processing of spent glycol recovered from airport tarmacs. Recycled Type I deicing fluid will also be produced at the facility. The facility also includes two instant deicing blenders which allow for customized concentrations of Type I glycol to be selected by the deice spray providers.
The treatment of non-recovered sprayed glycol is handled by two Storm Water Treatment Facilities. These treatment facilities break down glycol by means of forced aeration through seven positive displacement blowers, two gravel beds and three lift station pumps. The treatment facilities also include a nutrient dosing system designed to progressively add carbon, nitrogen and phosphorous to improve treatment performance.
Jim Fisher, Director of Consortium Operations said, “As the leader in fuel and glycol facilities management, FSM Group pledges its continued commitment to deliver leading edge integrated solutions that enhance business processes and increase operational efficiency for our valued aviation clients. We are pleased to provide our services to ensure CGFC’s glycol facilities operate at optimum capacity during varying levels of demand with environmental stewardship as a guiding principle.”
