The Blue Angel ecolabel, also known as the German Ecolabel, is a internationally recognized label that denotes environmentally friendliness for a wide range of products. When it was developed in 1978 by Germany's Department of the Environment, it became the first of its kind in the world. 55 years later, it has become one of the most well-known ecolabels worldwide and continues to set the standard for eco-friendly products and services. Individual consumers and organizational purchasers recognize this symbol as a beacon that highlights ecologically superior products and promotes environmentally conscious consumption. One of the product categories that is covered under the Blue Angel label is Movement Area De-icers for airfields. The basic requirements cover biodegradability, chemical oxygen demand, limitations on ingredients, exclusion of substances, wastewater toxicity, fitness for use, and other elements; however, we will shine light on the biodegradability requirements specifically in this article.
