Dallas/Fort Worth International Airport Joins EPA Performance Track

Dallas/Fort Worth International Airport has joined EPA’s National Environmental Performance Track program. The airport earned its spot by maintaining a sustained environmental compliance record and committing to reduce the amount of pollutants and waste it generates, while also cutting its energy use.

As part of their participation in the program, D/FW Airport has committed to do the following over the next three years:

  • Reduce 66,000 pounds of pollution through improved deicing fluid recovery techniques;
  • Reduce energy use by more than 46,000 kilowatt-hours by implementing energy-efficiency upgrades and retrofits. This will save the same amount of energy used by 1,500 households in one year;
  • Recover and recycle 100 percent of the waste from its graphic services department; and
  • Recycle 800 tons of waste through off-site recycling efforts. These reductions are equivalent to the amount of waste generated by 1,000 people in the course of a year.
