PDX Deicing Treatment Building


Port of Portland

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 feet 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 SF storage mezzanine is included over the office related functions, and the remainder of the building serves as a storage garage for the Glycol Recovery Vehicles.
