Airline maintenance base awarded

Fort Worth, TX— The Texas Commission on Environmental Quality has awarded its 2005 Governor’s Award for outstanding efforts in environmental protection and pollution prevention to American Airlines.

American is the first airline to win this prestigious award.

American’s wastewater treatment plant recycles water used at the base to wash aircraft, recirculate in the cooling towers, process rinse water tanks and irrigate the landscape. It has saved almost $1 million since 2002. The project started in 1998.

American also won for its reduction and handling of hazardous waste at its Alliance base, saving $229,000 after a $2,000 investment. Using a bar code system to track hazardous waste has reduced waste by 50 percent since 2000.
