Detroit Metropolitan Wayne County Airport in the US is developing a green strategy to help it reduce energy consumption at the facility.

It is looking to introduce LED lighting, stop the use of plastic in the airport, reduce de-icing fluid for roads by 50%, reduce its stormwater usage and introduce alternative power sources such as small wind turbines.

Nearly 5,000 blue LED lights have been installed on the taxiways, which is expected to reduce airport energy consumption by 41%, while plans are also underway to replace 6,800 light fixtures at two parking areas as well.

A total of $900,000 a year is expected to be saved by embarking on the initiatives.
