Case Study

Boston University

Boston University Campus

The business.

Chartered in 1869, Boston University is one of the nation's largest private urban research universities. With over 33,000 students, nearly 10,000 staff, and 17 schools and colleges offering 250 fields of study, BU ranks in the top 50 of US universities.¹

Problem paper towels

The problem.

Boston University's aim is to drive change on campus and integrate sustainability into existing education, research, and operations programs. It looks to improve existing campus buildings, renovations and new construction, to reduce energy consumption and decrease waste.

Dyson Airblade V hand dryers - the solution

The solution.

To improve a prospective student's experience, the university decided to try the Dyson Airblade V hand dryer in four of the admission center restrooms. With an estimated 70,000 annual visitors to the Leventhal Center, the Dyson Airblade V hand dryer saves over 140,000 paper towels from going to landfill.


Fast dry time
Traditional hand dryers can take as long as 43 seconds to dry hands properly. The Dyson digital motor V4 uses digital pulse technology, to spin up to 92,000 times a minute – drying hands in less than 14 seconds.²

Lower environmental impact
Dyson Airblade™ hand dryers have a lower impact on the environment, with almost 80% less CO2 than other hand dryers, saving about 18 metric tons of carbon annually.³

Lowest running cost
With a fast dry time and no heating element, Dyson Airblade™ hand dryers cost up to 69% less to operate per year than other hand dryers.⁴
