Boston's Logan Airport Gets LEED Certification

With notable features like heat-reflecting roof and windows, low-flow faucets and waterless urinals, self-dimming lights, and storm water filtration, Boston Logan Airport's new Terminal A has become the first airport to be LEED certified. "We want to be responsible to the environment and our neighbors and minimize the environmental impact, said Sam Sleiman, director of capital programs and environmental affairs at the Massachusetts Port Authority, which operates Logan. The new technology will save the terminal almost $300,000 in electric bills and 1.7 million gallons of water a year. Need a lift after you get there? Be sure to give PlanetTran's environmentally friendly pick-up and drop-off to and from Logan a go. ::Boston.com via ::Hugg
