Belfast International Airport reduces carbon footprint - claim.
Belfast International Airport has announced that, in an effort to reduce its carbon footprint, it is to cut down the amount of power used by its air conditioning units in arrivals and departure lounges.
The airport has reportedly made an investment of GBP91,500, which is grant-aided by independent energy supplier Energia's energy efficiency scheme, and is currently reducing electricity bills by GBP130,000 per year.
Gary Milligan from Energia said: "variable speed drives (VSDs) are having a pronounced and beneficial impact on businesses because of reduced costs, and on the environment, through lowered emissions throughout Northern Ireland".
