Toyota To Pioneer Use Of Biosynthetic Rubber in Engine and Drive System Hoses

Next month, Toyota will become the world's first automaker to use biohydrin, a newly-developed biosynthetic rubber product, in engine and drive system hoses.

Jointly developed by Toyota, Zeon Corporation, and Sumitomo Riko Co., Ltd., biohydrin rubber is manufactured using plant-derived bio-materials instead of epichlorohydrin, a commonly-used epoxy compound. Since plants absorb CO2 from the atmosphere during their lifespan, such bio-materials achieve an estimated 20 percent reduction in material lifecycle carbon emissions (in comparison to conventional petroleum-based hydrin rubber).

 The first vehicles to use vacuum sensing hoses* made from biohydrin rubber will be produced in May, with usage expected…

The EPA Recognizes Toyota's 12 Years of Environmental Leadership

Since 2002, Toyota has saved over 16 billion kilowatt hours of electricity. That is the equivalent of powering 995,000 average American homes for an entire year.  Saving that much energy across Toyota’s 14 North American manufacturing facilities could not have been possible without the individual efforts of team members to reduce energy use in their processes and work areas. Their efforts have enabled Toyota to earn its twelfth consecutive U.S. Environmental Protection Agency Energy Star Partner of the Year Award.
 
“Being named an Energy Star Partner of the Year is a tremendous honor,” said Toyota’s Plant…
