Special delivery for water protection at the Buenos Aires Airport
The glassfiber reinforced plastics (GRP) seperator offers environmental protection by treating pollutants in the drainage and rainwater network

At the end of 2019, ACO was contacted to consult the planners redesigning the drainage of the Jorge Newbery airport platform in Buenos Aires. The planner’s goal was to treat and clean pollution from the surface water, which required a hydrocarbon separator with a large treatment capacity. Finally, a horizontal Oleopass using mechanical coalescing technology with 800 l/s and an integrated bypass was recommended by ACO.
