• Enhances Campus Safety by Reducing the Use of Acid and Caustic Chemicals;
• Purdue University Receives Two Environmental Awards from GE Chairman and CEO Jeffrey R. Immelt.

GE provided Purdue with a mobile reverse osmosis (RO) trailer to give the university a cleaner source of water for its demineralizer units, which was more economical than a permanent RO installation. Through the use of GE technology, Purdue University reduced the number of regenerations from 455 to 56, and the time between regenerations improved from every 18 hours to every two weeks. In addition to reducing the amount of chemicals used on campus, Purdue also saved almost 2,000 hours of time that can be applied to other plant duties. Over the initial 11 months, Purdue University consumed 161 fewer tons of acid and 171 fewer tons of caustic. This reduction of chemicals resulted in 22 fewer bulk truck deliveries to campus.

For Purdue University’s savings, GE honored Purdue with both the Return on Environment (ROE) award and the Proof Not Promises Award (PNP). GE Chairman and CEO Jeffrey R. Immelt presented the award to the campus community earlier this month.

“It was an honor to receive the Return on Environment and Proof Not Promises awards. The implementation of the mobile reverse osmosis project reflects our ongoing commitment to addressing operational needs in an environmentally and fiscally responsible manner,” said Michael B. Cline, vice president for physical facilities, Purdue University.

The ROE award recognizes customers for significantly surpassing and improving environmental and industrial operational goals and balancing industrial demands. During the ROE three-tier selection process, set-goals, as well as the achieved environmental, operational and financial benefits are examined. The ROE is a prestigious award given to honor a significant environmental (water, energy, resource) component.

The PNP award recognizes customers for significantly improving industrial operational performance. GE works with customers to design and meet strategic business goals that result in proof, not promises.

“GE’s advanced water treatment technology allowed Purdue University to reduce chemical consumption in a responsible way and to improve campus safety,” said Jim O’Malley, account manager, middle market water and process technologies for GE Power & Water. “Purdue and GE are committed to safe, reliable and environmentally responsible operations, and the university’s dedication earned it the nominations and the awards.”
