BOSTON, MA, March 24 /PRNewswire/ - Imbrium Systems announced today that Stormceptor® was chosen to treat stormwater runoff at Logan Airport's new Consolidated Rental Car facility.  The main purpose of Massport's Consolidated Rental Car facility, known as the Conrac, is to consolidate all airport-related rental operations and facilities into one integrated facility and to reduce the number of shuttle buses on airport roadways.

"Massport continually strives to minimize the impact of its operations on the local environment.  But it also has responsibility to improve the performance of those key transportation assets", stated Jim Lyons, Sales Manager for Rinker Materials/Cemex USA, the North American Licensee for Stormceptor.  "Conrac is a terrific project that will consolidate Logan Airport's ground transportation facilities; while keeping the Airport a vital regional aviation hub well into the 21st century.  Ensuring that Conrac softened its environmental footprint within Boston Harbor was extremely important to the residents of this environmentally conscious region", noted Lyons.

Two Stormceptor 7200 series were installed on the Conrac project at the Robie Parcel because of their high storage capacity for sediment and hydrocarbons.  The Stormceptor 7200 has a sediment storage capacity of 839 cubic feet and hydrocarbon storage capacity of 1059 gallons.  In addition, the Conrac project also has two Stormceptor 4800 submerged outlet types installed during the site work at the taxi pool, cell phone lot and bus/limo pool.

The project consists of replacing and upgrading a myriad of existing ground transportation uses in the area of the airport known as the Southwest Service Area to be more efficient, environmentally friendly and to improve customer service. The Conrac project will be a LEED certified four-level parking garage with approximately 1.3 million square feet of parking, office and check-in space.

"Stormceptor was used on the Conrac project because of its demonstrated ability to efficiently capture fine sediment and hydrocarbons", stated Taso Iraclides, Imbrium Systems' New England and Mid-Atlantic Regional Manager.  "Conrac is intended to be a LEED certified project so capturing and retaining silt-sized sediment particles - which are the primary transporters of pollutants like phosphorus - is extremely important", added Iraclides.

With over 40, 000 installations world-wide, Stormceptor is the industry leader in Stormwater and spill capture hydrodynamic oil and sediment separator technology.  

"Stormceptor has a small, compact footprint, works 24/7, year in and year out.  Contractors know that it is easy to install and performs round the clock.  It is a terrific, tested stormwater treatment and spill capture device especially geared for hydrocarbons and sediment", said Justin Arnott, the Stormceptor Product Manager for Imbrium Systems.  "Most important, Stormceptor effectively treats stormwater runoff and ultimately protects Boston's precious water resources from unwanted pollutants.  When public institutions across North America use Stormceptor, they feel confident that they can accomplish their construction goals and provide maximum protection for their water resource assets", added Imbrium Systems' Justin Arnott.
