De-icers 063

De-icers bearing the Nordic Ecolabel meet a number of environmental, health and quality requirements.

This means that requirements are imposed on the effectiveness of the de-icers and their effects on the environment and people. This is done by imposing threshold values and bans on chemical products and heavy metals that might be harmful to humans and the environment. Requirements are for example imposed on the oxygen demand of the de-icers, content of chlorides, nutrients and additives classified as harmful to health and the environment. Requirements are also imposed to ensure that the de-icers function efficiently without having an excessive corrosive effect on buildings, aircraft and vehicles.
