Obviously GM is discovering the benefits of eliminating waste in it's manufacturing. It's simply foolish to throw away scrap metal in manufacturing plants, while most of today's apholstery fabrics are easy to re-purpose for other materials.
"Recycled materials and items included about 510 tons of aluminum, 600 tons of steel, 10 tons of alloy metals, 360 tons of wood pallets, 3 tons of paper, 20 tons of empty totes and drums, 250 tons of used oil, 220 tons of waste water residual and 5,400 tons of returnable packaging."
Additionally exciting, the White Marsh plant is producing the 2-Mode hybrid systems that will be making GM's trucks more fuel efficient.
It looks like GM is serious
