A major manufacturer of toilet bowls for the airline industry
Water usage on flights for the Japanese markets was more than double that of European and U.S. market flights; the reason identified was the cultural importance of cleanliness in the Japanese market. The challenge: Reduce the need for the extra water usage.
Orion Industries applie a non-stick coating on the interior of the toilet bowl. This coating would be resistant to the elements in use and would offer non-stick for easy clean. This resulted in reduced water usage. Since the Orion solution was a success, the application was expanded to include all of Envirovac's other markets, reducing water usage even more, and saving the airline industry money.
