Five new Dongfeng trucks, for the purpose of recovering liquid from airport runways, have been delivered to Beijing Daxing International airport ahead of the winter season.

The Guo VI (Euro VI-equivalent) emission standards-compliant vehicles are equipped with Allison Transmissions and were developed by Shanghai Shenzhou Vehicle Energy Saving & Environmental Protection (Shenzhou) and Dongfeng.

Beijing Daxing International airport opened in September 2019 and is China’s biggest airport. The airport de-icing fluid recovery vehicle absorbs residual liquid from the ground after de-icing, as well as other aircraft cleaning liquids, from airport ramps, runways and maintenance areas. The waste liquid is collected through suction and then discharged into a special recycling container for follow-up treatment. This recovery technology not only reduces the environmental risks from the de-icing fluids but also enables the recycled liquids to be reused.
