Today is the UN’s World Water Day and addressing the global water crisis — as well as future-proofing their own water supply — is top of mind for many environmental managers. Here are some of the water management and conservation projects we are following.
Ford implemented the two efficiency programs last year: an increase in the re-use of water in the plant’s pre-treatment system and the addition of a cooling tower side-stream electrolysis (water softening) to remove calcium and magnesium.
Several new innovations, including a lightweight carbon fiber composite subframe, electrified work trucks and biofuel made from wastewater can help corporate fleets reduce emissions and meet fuel economy regulations.
Ford is expanding its program that helps suppliers improve their environmental management, growing the Partnership for A Cleaner Environment (PACE) program company participants to more than 40 in two years.
Emissions and fuel-economy standards for new cars will likely be overhauled this week as the Trump administration is expected to announce an agreement with major auto companies to rollback the rules for model years 2022-2025 cars and light trucks.
General Motors, Ford, Toyota and 15 other major automakers have urged President Donald Trump to reverse a decision by the Obama administration to lock in fuel efficiency rules for model years 2022-2025 cars and light trucks.
