Toyota to build new Prius in Eco-Factory in Japan

The Tsutsumi plant that builds the Prius is one of five ISO14001 certified Eco-factories in the Toyota network. The factory has a 50,000m2 solar array on its roof that generates 2,000 kW per hour of electricity, about half of the plant's total requirements. Another 22,000m2 of the factory is covered in a photocatalytic paint that converts NOx to oxygen and nitrogen. A number of initiatives including zero land-fill waste, water recycling and reduced volatile organic compound use are all part of the overall effort to reduce the impact of building Priuses.
The bottom line is ...

Lets not only make eco friendly cars. but eco friendly factories that build the cars.
