LEED & the Mitsubishi Jet Towel

Developed in 1998 with the aims of providing real benchmarks for green building design, LEED has become an international standard for building owners wishing to achieve healthy and environmentally sound constructions. By eliminating paper waste and using less electricity than any comparable dryer, the Mitsubishi Jet Towel contributes to the LEED certification process of every building.

How is it Green?

The Jet Towel eliminates paper waste from restrooms, lowering the amount of waste a building produces. Removing paper towel waste also reduces the associated resources required for paper towel production and transportation.

Mitsubishi’s energy-efficient motor makes sure that as little electricity as possible is used in drying hands and sensors in the Jet Towel stop operation once hands leave the dryer.
