Too Much Hot Air

There is more and more attention being paid to “green” programs that will help to save the planet.  We see it in our personal lives as well as in our work places.   And rightly so, as we should all do more to reduce waste and decrease our carbon footprint.  

It turns out Lean can play an important role in this issue. As we use the Lean techniques to reduce process waste we are positively affecting the environment.         

I came across an article that I thought might be relevant to many manufacturers.  While this article focuses on a restaurant, their ingenious “green” idea could be implemented at any organization that has a heat treat operation or any operation whose by-product is “a lot of hot air”!
