CNH-Case Corporation

Year Submitted: 2006

CNH-Case Corporation is a world leader in the production of agricultural and construction equipment. Revenues in 2002 totaled $10 billion. The Burlington facility assembles tractor loader backhoes and forklifts. CNH-Case Corporation wanted to lower its corporate Paint Exposure Index (PEI) Score, reduce Volatile Organic Compound (VOC) emissions, reduce water usage and reduce solid waste generation.

P2 Application:

Reroute Rinse Water: CNH-Case has implemented a plumbing scheme that takes water from one rinse stage of the e-coat rinse system and uses it in two other rinse stages. Implementation costs were about $2,900. The payback period for this project is five months. Water use was reduced by 4 million gallons per year, with a savings in both water and sewer costs.

Non-Scheduled Compactor Pickup: Case has one trash compactor on twice-weekly scheduled pickup. Receipts from Waste Management show that this compactor was being sent to the landfill with an average weight of 2 tons. The compactor is capable of holding load weights of 6 to 8 tons. If this compactor were picked up once every 10 days instead of twice weekly, economic savings could be as much as $8,800 in the form of saved hauling fees. Environmental savings, because of reduced travel with the compactors, amount to approximately 150 gallons of gasoline.

  • Total Cost Savings: $16,300.00

Details of Reductions

  • 4,000,000.0 - Gallons of   Water
    Comments: Reroute Rinse Water
  • 150.0 - Gallons of   Gasoline
