What are the environmental benefits of waterjet use?

Due to the fact that waterjets produce very little heat and create a very small amount of kerf, materials are used much more efficiently and consciously. Waterjets also use environmentally friendly materials, (water and a natural abrasive agent), for cutting, without producing harmful by products or gasses like other cutting technologies. The water used within the closed loop system of a waterjet is reusable, while the abrasive agent such as garnet, is easily recycled or repurposed.
