According to Ernst, from Lotus Systems, their products are distinct from those of their competitors in that they consume less energy, water, and electricity. This leads to a reduced cost of ownership as well as a more sustainable green system. In addition, according to Ernst, the waste systems the company supplies are more sustainable than their competitors, since they use less chemicals to neutralize or flocculate manufacturing by-products.
