PDX Deicing Treatment Building
The PDX Deicing treatment building is part of a larger Deicing Systems Enhancement project for the Port of Portland. This steel and CMU structure houses the processing equipment for the treatment of recovered deicing glycol. The main volume of the building, the Treatment Room, contains two 32 ft. high reactors and access catwalk platforms, as well as numerous other pumps, pipes and equipment required for the process. The center of the building, marked by a lower, single-slope roof, houses offices, laboratory and IT rooms, as well as a large electric room powering the treatment process and a new nearby Pump Station. Support functions for the employees include a breakroom, restrooms and showers. A 2,400 sq. ft. storage mezzanine is included over the office related functions, and the remainder of the building is a storage garage for the Glycol Recovery Vehicles.
