Caterpillar is the world’s leading manufacturer of construction and mining equipment, diesel and natural gas engines, industrial gas turbines and diesel-electric locomotives. We are a leader and proudly have the largest global presence in the industries we serve. Learn more about our Strategy, Governance, History and Brands, as well as the values that guide our conduct. Caterpillar has a long-standing relationship with NASA, dating back to when Neil Armstrong first stepped on the moon. It was Caterpillar that supplied the gensets to power the antennas and allow those famous words to be heard all over the world. Most recently, Caterpillar has been the main sponsor for NASA’s collegiate Robotic Mining Competition for the past ten years. That collaboration effort led to us getting involved in this Centennial Challenge.
In a world where resources are becoming increasingly scarce, the recycling and reuse of waste are more necessary than ever before.
Recycling recovers the secondary raw materials in waste, which can then be returned to the industrial manufacturing process. We’ve developed methods to characterise waste, and an innovative recovery processes for plastics.
SUEZ possesses a broad range of technologies to recover the energy contained in organic waste, from incineration, which produces heat and electricity, to methanation (anaerobic digestion), which produces biogas that can be used immediately or purified and then injected into the main public gas distribution networks.
First 25-year warranty on solar panels
1997 – After more than two decades of manufacturing solar panels, we became confident that our panels could last at least 25 years and still be producing at 80% of their original power. Now we can point to hundreds of systems that have performed beyond these standards even with 25-year or older technology.
First 25-year linear warranty
2009 – SolarWorld introduces the industry’s first 25-year linear warranty. SolarWorld is the first to issue a guarantee that our panels will decrease in power by no more than 0.7% per year, resulting in no less than 80% of nameplate performance in year 25.
