Baltimore/Washington International (BWI) Thurgood Marshall Airport in Maryland will begin collecting used cooking oil from its 50 dining locations and will use that oil to produce sustainable aviation fuel and other renewable products.
This process will be part of BWI’s sustainability project, Solution Zero, which originally launched with Fraport USA and Mahoney Environmental, an oil collection company.
Vice President at Fraport USA, Gary Gilliard, said of a recent study, “the result was a sustainability program that will revolutionize how used cooking oil collection will operate at BWI Marshall Airport now and for the future.”
Mike Mullaney, President, and CEO of Fraport USA commented, “Solution Zero exemplifies the kinds of initiatives that set Fraport apart as an industry leader and innovator. We set the bar very high to maximize airport efficiencies and create at best-in0class passenger experience.”
