Ford Auto Parts Help The Environment
Did you know that Ford Recycles 1.2 Billion Plastic Bottles a Year for Auto Parts? Ford Motor company now builds underbody shields for all models and the wheel liners on F-Series trucks with plastic recycled from water bottles. On average about 250 bottles per vehicle are used.
Due to its light weight, recycled plastic is ideal for the manufacture of underbody shields, engine under shield and front and rear wheel arch liners that can help improve vehicle aerodynamics. These shields also help create a significantly quieter environment on the all-new 2020 Ford Escape.
“Ford is among the leaders when it comes to using recycled materials such as this, and we do it because it makes sense technically and economically as much as it makes sense for the environment,” said Thomas Sweder, design engineer, Ford Motor Company. “This material meets all of our robust specifications for durability and performance.”
Ford Motor Company is dedicated to building environmentally friendly vehicles. From their efficient clean-air hybrid vehicles to the parts that are used across the full model lineup, Ford is making difference.
