I don’t propose to understand how this works but apparently Ford is planning to capture the paint fumes from their Oakville plant to power a fuel cell that will convert the fumes into electricity! I knew paint fumes were strong stuff but who knew they could power a 300 kilowatt fuel cell completely eliminating NOX and reducing CO2 by 88%? I’ll tell you who knew, Ford knew.
“The Oakville installation is the first of its kind in the world to harvest emissions from an automotive facility for use in fuel cell,” said Kit Edgeworth, Ford’s abatement equipment technical specialist for Manufacturing. “It is the greenest technology and offers the perfect solution to the industry’s biggest environmental challenge traditionally.”
