Salvador Bahia named Brazil's "most sustainable airport" in 2019
19 May 2020 - Events - Brazil
Brazil's National Civil Aviation Agency (ANAC) has recognised Salvador Bahia International Airport, managed by VINCI Airports since early 2018, as "Brazil's most sustainable aerodrome in 2019".
Since it joined the VINCI Airports network, the airport has been fully renovated and is the country's first airport to achieve "zero waste to landfill" and the only one to achieve "zero liquid discharge" (100% of wastewater recycled in toilets and for the air cooling towers). In the near future, it will also become Brazil's first airport to have a self-consumption photovoltaic park to power its terminal, which will reduce the airport's carbon footprint by a further 30%.
