Toyota Plant To Get Green Makeover
Toyota says that it plans to increase the sustainability of its production operations, Huliq.com reports. The initiative will emphasize the role of nature in creating production sites.
These “sustainable plant” activities are to be first carried out at Toyota’s Tsutsumi Plant, which makes the Prius hybrid vehicle and which has been positioned as a “model sustainable plant.” In addition to a cogeneration system already in place, the plant is to use a 2,000kW photovoltaic generation system, one of the biggest in use among the world’s automobile plants, according to Toyota.
TMC intends to paint the plant’s exterior with photo-catalytic paint, which breaks down air-born nitrogen oxides and sulfur oxides with the cleansing effect of 2,000 poplar trees.
The company will also plant trees at the Tsutsumi Plant.
By carrying out the above, Toyota aims to reduce Tsutsumi’s CO2 emissions by five percent.
