Use of groundwater and rainwater
When it comes to resource conservation, FMG believes in the importance of handling drinking water on the airport campus as carefully and economically as possible.
For example, quaternary groundwater close to the surface (process water) is used for cooling power centers instead of precious tertiary groundwater (drinking water). The process water comes from wells created by the airport.
Additional saving methods
Water-saving fittings are used in terminals to reduce drinking
water consumption. The water used in carwashes is reused
several times after treatment. Operation of the fire training
facility predominantly uses rainwater that has been collected
from paved areas at the training facility and then stored for
extinguishing fires. Above all, quarternary groundwater near
the surface from own wells is increasingly used to clean
roads and air operations surfaces, to dampen building site
equipment and for air conditioning in buildings, instead of
using tertiary groundwater from deeper groundwater levels.
