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.

Molecular Magic

CO2 is polymerized and combined with additives to produce high-quality plastics.

Shape Shifting

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.
