Toyoda Gosei switches Seto plant to LNG

Japan’s Toyoda Gosei installed liquefied natural gas (LNG) heating and cooling equipment at its Seto Plant, which manufactures automobile interior and exterior products.

This switch from kerosene to LNG and electricity as an energy source will cut carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions at the plant by about 800 tons per year, equivalent to roughly 12 percent of total plant emissions, the company said in a statement.

Toyoda Gosei’s long-term environmental plan with a view toward 2050 includes the goal of minimizing CO2 emissions. In working toward that goal the company aims to reduce annual CO2 emissions by 26,000 tons compared with 2012 levels by fiscal 2020.

The switch to liquefied natural gas as energy sources is one part of that effort, the company said.
