Cummins Saves Big with New Water System21-Jul-2014
BY BORIS LADWIG
Cummins Inc. has installed a revolutionary new water system at its Corporate Office Building and Fuel Systems Plant that the company expects to significantly cut expenses along with the company’s use of water and hazardous chemicals.
Annual water consumption by the building’s cooling system has declined by more than 6 million gallons — about as much water as 40 families of four use in a year. The system at the headquarters cost Cummins $28,000 and is producing annual savings of $85,000. And it has largely eliminated the use of hazardous chemicals.
