Subaru Recycles

subarI am a big fan of Subaru.  They may not be the most efficient cars on the road, but they are a wonderful all-terrain alternative without resulting to buying gas-guzzling SUV.  There has been a lot of attention on car companies like Honda and Toyota for their continuous effort to link for you cialis prescriptionsgeneric cialis sale create greener vehicles.  While Subaru currently does not have an ultra-efficient car on look there cialis dosage the market, their recycling program might make up for that.

Subaru of Indiana Automotive (SIA) in Lafayette, Indiana, recycles 97% of their leftover steel, plastic, wood, paper, glass, and other materials.  The remaining 3% gets shipped to Indianapolis to be incinerated.  Paint sludge is dried to a powder and soft viagra tablets shipped to a plastics manufacture to be mixed in with other plastic compounds.  Solvents used in the painting process are cleaned, recovered, and reused.   

Subaru also designs their vehicles to be recycled easily.  The can be easily dismantled and the parts are labeled and coded to make sorting easier.  Not only are the online levitra sales vehicles easy to recycle they are also made up of recycled materials: plastic bottles are used in insulation, plastic bumper waste are used for new bumpers, scraps from clothing manufactures are used for base trim layers, paint sludge and discarded paper are used in vibration-absorbing door panels.   

Not all the materials in the vehicles are recyclable nor are they all made of recycled material, but Subaru continues to be a leader in Cradle to buy cialis online without prescription Cradle car care.
 

LA AutoShow: Nine Designs, The Ultimate in the Future of Green Cars

 {mosimage}
 
We blogged a while back about the prospects for the LA Auto Show, and even broke the news that GM was designing a concept Hummer that would emit pure oxygen instead of the best choice generic levitra online CO2 through the use of algae converters. No one took that very seriously, as it sounded ridiculous, and hadn't been confirmed. Well consider it confirmed! And here we are, ready to bring you the eight other contestants in this year's LA Design Challenge.

We're excited to see that the genuine viagra online focus isn't just on fuel cells and elecrics, but on making cars lighter, safer, and more efficient through broader design changes, embracing new materials, and developing some downright weird ideas.

Our favorite design of the competition is the
Toyota RLV (renewable lifestyle vehicle.)  When it goes, it goes, up to 75 mph at a pretty good clip, using nothing more than it's electric motor. But when you're stuck in a Los Angeles traffic jam, forget about wasting your batteries, and just pedal. That's right, the RLV has a pedal power option, if you're feeling like getting some exercise, taking it easy, or conserving your battery, just pedal the lightweight two seater to your destination. The RLV represents more than a new design for a car, it's a new design for cars in general and, from what I can tell, a darned good one.
 
 

VW Goes Green With High-Temp Fuel Cells

vwfuelcell

Volkswagen has announced a new fuel cell that promises to be faster, stronger, and more productive than its competitors.

The new High Temperature Fuel Cell (HTFC) uses layers of carbon fiber cloth to insulate the cell membrane, allowing operating temperatures as high as 120 degrees Celsius (248 Fahrenheit). Fuel cell prototypes that don't utilize the carbon fiber insulation are restricted to canadianpharmacy temperatures of 80 degrees Celsius (176 Fahrenheit). The higher heat allows for a more effiecient fuel cell.

Better insulation also means that VW's new fuel cell requires a smaller cooling system, in turn allowing the company to implement the http://www.wowgraphicdesigns.com/buy-levitra-generic HTFC in a wide range of vehicles, from subcompacts to small trucks. Unfortunately for ecogeeks chomping at the bit to hop into a HTFC Rabbit, Volkswagen says the technology won't be considered for production until 2020.

All Car Ads Should be 25% "Environmental Impact Data"

colinI've been thinking, in my own diabolical brain, how to turn cars into cigarettes. Maybe that wasn't clear...here's what I mean. Cigarettes used to be cool. But it turns out they're addictive, expensive and dangerous. Well, cars are cool now, but in the last few years we've realized that they are also addictive, expensive and dangerous. So what do we do? Start with warning labels, Check. Next, make the industry pay for advertisements showing how horrible they are. Well, we're not there yet, but Britain might be headed in that direction.

A British politician (and Chair of the House of wow look it cheap fast cialis Commons Climate Change Committee,) Colin Challen, has put forth a measure that would require 25% of all car ads to discuss only environmental impact data. Operating on the assumption that a more informed public would purchase fewer gas guzzlers, this could make a pretty significant difference for car companies. And, more importantly, it could be a significant step toward the self-vilification of what is visit our site viagra medication almost certainly a world-wide villain.

America's Chub Uses One Billion Gallons of Gas a Year

fatmanlittlecar

We all know that Americans drive more than other folks.  It's a big country with a car culture...but a new study from the University of Illinois has shown that the 25 lbs gained (on average) by every American since 1960 is has actually directly lead to one billion gallons of extra gas consumed!
 
"Hows that?" you ask. Well, every extra pound an engine has to i use it original cialis push requires more gas, and in the past forty years, Americans have been putting on a lot of extra pounds. If we all shed a few pounds, millions of gallons could be saved! Now we EcoGeeks finally have a good reason to quit the Mountain Dew and Doritos diet. Maybe I'll even take a jog down to the health food store.  Or maybe not.
