GM Plant Avoids 38,425 Metric Tons of CO2

GM logoGeneral Motors’ Toledo Transmission plant in one year reduced energy intensity by 30 percent, avoiding 38,425 metric tons of carbon from entering the atmosphere. The plant also reduced wastewater pretreatment discharges by 60 percent since 2009.

For these and other efforts to reduce its environmental impact, the plant received an award from the National Pollution Prevention Roundtable.

GM Toledo last year installed a 1.8-megawatt rooftop solar array, the largest in Ohio, and uses landfill gas. Combined, these renewable energy sources provide 19 percent of the facility’s energy.

GM Toledo is one of GM’s 111 landfill-free facilities. All byproducts from daily manufacturing operations are either recycled, reused or converted to energy. No waste is sent to a landfill.

The facility manufactures six-speed and eight-speed automatic transmissions for light-duty trucks, sport utility vehicles, crossover vehicles and cars.
