In order to facilitate maintenance operations, which are often carried out during the day due to the nature of the air cargo business, the hanger has a wide range of ecological features that contribute to environmental conservation. These include a design that enhances the natural light inside the structure, a highly efficient natural ventilation system, the use of rainwater to wash fuselages and a green roof. These measures to save energy and conserve the environment will reduce annual CO2 emissions by 30% from the level of conventional hangars, down from 900 tons to 620 tons.
