Nissan is trying so hard to become a clean and green auto manufacturer for some time now. The Asian company has big plans for future of its line-up. The new 2021 Nissan Rogue is going to be the company’s most important and ground breaking.
Why? The new Rogue’s aluminum parts are built with closed-loop recycling system. The system is super important because it reduced CO2 emissions. That is something that does not happen with alloy of raw materials.
On the other hand, the system does not use mined materials and resources, so this will help reduce the factory waste.
The material used for the Rogue’s hood and doors is made of aluminum alloy, in order to bring less weight to the model. This would also increase its efficiency and performance.
Nissan is being helped and supported by Kobe Steel, Ltd. and UACJ Corp. and Arconic Corp. and Novelis Inc. in order to develop the model in Kyushu, Japan, and Smyrna, Tennessee.
A big pneumatic conveyance system is behind all these. Since the company stamps the doors and hood in order the shape them, the extra material is shredded and can be extracted later. This can keep the aluminum in separated grades.
The company can actually return the scrap back to the suppliers, so they can reprocess it to aluminum alloy sheet and then again, send them back to Nissan. It can save more than 90 percent of the energy used to make the counterpart with raw materials.
Since the company intends to stick to the Nissan Green Program 2022, this can be a great help. It can replace 30 percent of the raw materials used in new cars. The biomaterials are made of the recycled materials and are much lighter.
