Getting rid of winter de-icing flight delays for good
Average departure delay due to chemical ice removal
“The best way to save money for an airline is to run a reliable on-time schedule, and current-state de-icing makes this impossible.”
- JOHN OWEN, Co-founder and former CFO at JetBlue Airways
How it Works
Unlike the chemical spray method, De-Ice is fast, efficient, and chemical-free. De-Ice eliminates weather-related departure delays and carbon emissions.
We’re proud to have Air Canada as our launch customer.
Improve on-time performance
Eliminate glycol spraying costs and delays
Reduce idling fuel burn and other sources of CO₂ emissions
Environmental Impact of Chemical Ice Removal
Today all commercial and military aircraft use sprays made with propylene glycol or ethylene glycol to remove snow or ice prior to takeoff. Producing, transporting, and heating these chemicals generates significant carbon dioxide emissions.
