Kevin et al,
I may be able to help you... have worked in this field before.
There are four (at least) "dimensions" to this issue: Safety, Operations
(both ground traffic control and aircraft launch), Economic (i.e. cost)
I did not find that the environmental aspect could be solved
independently. Any replacement chemical or technique for deicing will
affect the other three dimensions.
Additionally, there are political factors/vested interests at airports
that will affect problem resolution: at a minimum there are the fixed
base operators, the airlines, the aircraft manufacturers, the airport
authority and the airline pilots union.
The problem of deicing cries out for solution (pun intended). I would be
pleased to share with you the progress we made. You are welcome to call
me direct... 937-885-7732 (eastern time zone)
