Toyota to Put Plants in Parts for Vehicles

Toyota plans to reduce its carbon dioxide emissions to zero by 2050

Toyota plans to reduce its vehicle life cycle carbon dioxide emissions to zero by 2050, and as another step toward that goal, the automaker intends to use new biosynthetic rubber for certain powertrain hoses. The plant-derived material is called biohydrin, and has two main benefits.

Lower Emissions
It’s not just a vehicle’s fuel consumption that generates emissions, but the gradual deterioration of petroleum-based parts like rubber hoses. Fortunately, these upcoming biohydrin rubber hoses should reduce the life cycle carbon emissions of all Toyota hoses by about 20 percent, a massive improvement when applied to all new Toyota vehicles. This is because, unlike the standard epoxy hoses, this biosynthetic material is more cap,able of absorbing carbon dioxide.

High Durability
This advanced rubber was created through a partnership between Toyota, Zeon Corporation, and Sumitomo Riko Co., Ltd. There’s no downside to the consumer with these new hoses. In fact, Toyota states that the material is so resistant to oil and heat that they plan to make biohydrin rubber for the brake and fuel line hoses in the future.

The implementation of biohydrin rubber hoses is just one of several projects Toyota is running as part of their initiative to reduce emissions and support the environment, outlined in 2015. Production of the first biohydrin engine and drive-system hoses began in May. The first wave of vehicle testing will begin in Japan, and should soon spread to all Toyota vehicles. If successful, this change will be applied to other Toyota-owned makes, like Lexus, as well.
