Remanufacturing Reduces Carbon Footprint

May 12, 2009

JASPER, IN – Remanufacturing is a "greener" alternative to manufacturing vehicles, according to Indiana-based Jasper Engines. Compared to data from the U.S. Department of Energy, Jasper's remanufacture of a drivetrain component averaged only 1 percent of the energy consumed of manufacturing the entire vehicle — an energy savings of nearly six tons of coal or 1,008 gallons of crude oil annually.

Jasper customers have managed to save enough energy in 2007 to power nearly 600,000 homes — or every residence in a city the size of Washington — for an entire year, the company said.

The remanufacturing process breaks the cycle of raw material harvest and production, significantly reducing greenhouse gas emissions. As a recipient of the 2006 Verizon Supplier Excellence Award, Jasper has been recognized for its strengths in environmentally safe remanufacturing techniques.

"Recycling reduces your carbon footprint. By returning engine, transmission, and differential cores, in a skid, you are recycling cast iron, aluminum, wood, plastic boxes, etc. All that is part of reducing your carbon footprint," said Bob Boeglin, national sales manager, Jasper Engines and Transmissions.

"With Jasper, we are also at a 25 percent minority spend, so customers can apply for that second tier minority spend or 25 percent of their spend with us, they apply towards their minority spend. Many times, it's very important if they are trying to reach certain goals for federal or state contracts," said Boeglin.
