As explained in the video “Every Drop Counts,” a retired plant engineer's sketch intrigues a team of associates who seek to generate their own energy with a simple but ingenious device. Using spare parts and materials from the plant, the team builds a small-scale hydropower generation system at Honda's manufacturing plant in Marysville, Ohio. The waterwheel-like gadget captures energy from water as it falls from a cooling tower, cutting the plant's CO2 emissions by 77,000 pounds per year.
