CAR PARTS MADE FROM CO2? YES!
Ford turns to scientists to make car production more sustainable.
The Ford carbon reduction strategy includes a remarkable pollution-reducing transformation: recycling waste into plastic—one carbon molecule at a time. This commitment to sustainability is just one way Ford aims to Go Further, the right way. Here’s how this eco-conscious process may work.
CO2 is redirected
...from factory emissions to a waste recycling facility, instead of being fully released into air.
CO2 is polymerized and combined with additives to produce high-quality plastics.
The plastic is then injection-molded into whatever shape Ford engineers require.
Ready For Action
Durable plastic parts—including cupholders, shifters and seats—may be installed in new Ford cars.
