Växjö Småland Airport has been certified as an environmentally conscious organization in accordance with ISO 14001 since 2013 and works continuously to improve its environmental work. During the last few years, the airport has improved the general operations of the facility through cooperation with various projects to be more energy efficient. One such successful project was the rebuilding of the airport’s district heating systems to be more efficient resulting in a 50% reduction of energy use.
During the winter, aircraft are de-iced with glycol (monopropylene) and the runoff is collected from the ground to then be transported to a company which cleans and transforms the waste into new glycol. In addition, Växjö Småland Airport has an environmental program that regularly takes samples from surface water that runs off into the surrounding nature.
