AP reports on the new GM auto plant in Michigan unveiled as the "most environmentally-friendly auto plant" in the world. It implements lots of green innovations like:
Â The GM plant has a reflective roof to reduce heat absorption, saving costs to cool the building. It also has 800 lights in the assembly area, half that in a typical plant. About 80 percent of the waste generated during construction, or nearly 4,000 tons, was diverted from landfills. Rainwater is collected from the roof and used instead of potable water to flush toilets.
