There was an article in Avaiation Week about how the Germans have built a 
special system for de-icing planes at the big, controversial new airport 
over there (Erwinger Moos sp?)  It collects the glycol spray and recycles 
it so the earthworms don't have to swim in it. Good idea.  I sat at the 
gate at Chicago Midway a few times and watched them shoot the stuff all 
over the plane.  Most of it went down a drain in the tarmac.  I'll bet it 
wasn't recycled.
