We recently completed and shipped a custom glass flooring product for the new Delta Airlines T4 terminal at JFK New York. This is a very exciting project for us because of the visibility involved in a prestigious project such as JFK, but also due to the fact that we approached this project in a green manner.
We shipped the glass from CA to NY via rail instead of standard over the road trucks. In doing so we saved TONS of C02 carbon dioxide omissions. Here are the details:
If we had shipped via LTL truck over the road it would have used up 10.48 tons of CO2. Since we moved via rail we used only 2.35 tons saving 8.12 tons of CO2!
Installation photos of this exciting new project will follow on jockimo.com shortly.
