Toyota's Huntsville plant is partnering with Alabama A&M University to explore possible applications of biofuel. We've created a closed-loop system by sending waste oil from our cafeteria to the university, and getting back biodiesel for use in on-site trucks.
Team members at Toyota's assembly plant in Indiana have come up with some pretty innovative ways to reduce waste. Changing the treatment chemical for wastewater turned the resulting sludge into a perfect replacement for cement in cement kilns. For more information, visit http://www.toyota.com/environmentrepo...

Bloomberg is committed to the development of on-site renewable energy. Our first renewable energy project was a 1.8 Megawatt solar system that contributes over 50% of the power needs at our Skillman, NJ office campus. This was followed by another rooftop solar installation at our San Francisco office. These projects reduce our dependence on the local power grid AND save us money!
