Problem Statement

Burke Corporation is one of the largest companies in Nevada, Iowa and they make processed foods specifically pizza topping. Burke also uses 25% of the city’s fresh water supply. The company spends 875,000 dollars each year and uses 65,385,000 gallons of water. Burke wants to reduce these costs and in turn be more environmentally friendly. One of the bigger issues noticed is that to heat up one of their pipes they are running hot water over it. This wastes water and also creates a slip and fall hazard.
