Our Engine Center in Seguin, Texas, manufactures, tests and paints diesel engines for Caterpillar customers. These activities generate a variety of byproduct materials, the most significant of which is the process water that comes from engine hot testing. At one point, the facility produced more than 100,000 gallons of wastewater every month.

In Gauteng, South Africa, the project engineers of the Johannesburg Distribution Center (JDC) used Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) principles as a model in designing the new warehouse and office facility. Energy-saving initiatives include LED lighting for both the building and multi-tier shelving systems and energy-efficient batteries for mobile equipment.
