Project objective
Project Objective

  • Who is Siemens?

  • What is their challenge for Penn State?

    • To redesign elements of the campus to be more sustainable

    • Small scale and scope of the solution


Introduction
Introduction

  • Sustainability: A concept with the goal of. . .

    • Reducing the consumption and wastage of resources

    • Operating with low maintenance and installation needs

    • Requires little energy for operation

    • Makes the customer more environmentally friendly

  • Customer: Penn State University Park Students


Sustainable opportunities
Sustainable opportunities

  • Possible themes for the project:

    • Restructure the campus transportation system

    • Reduce electricity consumption in dormitories

    • Improve the treatment of waste water through Bio-Retention

    • Reduce water consumption and waste in dorms


Campus water consumption
Campus water consumption

  • A typical four person family consumes 3,500 gallons per month

  • East Halls consumes approximately 2.5 million gallons of water per month

  • Packer Hall alone consumes 315,000 gallons of water each month



Research application
Research Application

  • By applying this data, the ideal amount of faucet use is 18,717 gallons per month:

    • (4.5 hand washes per day)*(30 sec per wash)*(0.0157 gallons per second)*(294 packer inhabitants)*(30 days in a month)= 18,717 gal/month

  • Consumption of water at the sink accounts for approximately 15% of the total water used in Packer

    • ((315,000 gal)x(0.15)) – (18,717 theoretical gal. used)= 28,533 gallons excess!

  • The goal of our design will be to eliminate the 28,533 gallons that are wasted
