Aviation Commissioner Rosemarie Andolino announced Monday that Chicago's airports are going green.

Solar panels will be installed at O'Hare Airport, and a station providing alternative fuels for ground vehicles will also be built.

Midway Airport is starting a composting program to handle food waste from its restaurants.

Andolino talked about the initiatives at the Airport Going Green Conference at the Westin Chicago River North hotel. The conference brings together airport executives from across the area to discuss environmental issues.
