ENVIRONMENT + G.P.L. = VERY GOOD
All C2FPA fire workshops use LPG gas rather than kerosene.
In liquid and/or vapor form, in order to guarantee realistic conditions in the reproduction of fires, LPG gas, a mixture of butane and propane, contains neither benzene nor sulfur that is dangerous for the environment. It offers a higher calorific value than kerosene.
The combustion of LPG does not produce particles during its combustion (soot) and significantly limits CO2 emissions, one of the gases responsible for the greenhouse effect.
The combustion of LPG does not generate any odor or smoke, produces little carbon monoxide, relatively few unburned hydrocarbons, and relatively little carbon dioxide compared to other fuels derived from petroleum. This combustion mainly releases water vapor and CO2, but to a lesser extent, which makes LPG an unavoidable alternative energy source.
Through these responsible measures, C2FPA protects all the trainees and trainers from the very toxic “black smoke” resulting from the combustion of kerosene, who can leave our site in complete confidence.
FLEET OF VEHICLES EQUIPPED WITH “EURO” ENGINES
For the transport industry and users of heavy goods vehicles, the challenge is to reduce the impact of growth on the environment by significantly reducing pollutant emissions, while maintaining vehicle productivity and optimizing fuel savings.
The European “Euro” emissions standards set the maximum limits for pollutant emissions from vehicles on the road. They are a set of increasingly strict standards for new vehicles. The “EURO 4” standard applicable on October 1, 2006 and “EURO 5” applicable on October 1, 2009 will have made it possible in 20 years to divide the emissions of pollutants from industrial vehicles by 5 while the traffic will have been multiplied by 2.
C2FPA has a fleet of Foam Response Vehicles (FRVs) equipped with “EURO 4” and “EURO 5” engines, which offer a 50% reduction in NOx emissions and an 80% reduction in particle emissions compared to their “EURO 3” counterparts.
100% OF WASTEWATER RECOVERED AND RECYCLED
Water treatment is exemplary, since 100% of the residual water on the fire areas is recovered, treated and recycled. All fire areas are waterproofed and runoff from roofs and pavements is collected and directed first to a 250 m3 covered buffer basin and then, after passing through a depollution unit, to a 650 m3 retention basin.
The water is then pumped into the 650 m3 basin and reused for 3 different activities:
- Filling of the Foam Response Vehicles with a network of 4 filling points
- Cooling of the BOEING 747 and AIRBUS 320 fire simulators
- Supply of the water network feeding fire hydrants intended for firefighters’ training exercises.
C2FPA is certified by the International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO) under the Trainair Plus program since November 24, 2011.
The Trainair Plus Associate Certificate from the International Civil Aviation Organization (I.C.A.O.) certifies that C2FPA meets the following objectives:
• Improve methodological standards and course design procedures;
• Use standardized training materials;
• Manage and deliver civil aviation training courses.
The certificate was renewed for three years in October 2018.
