Nissan has made many efforts to improve how environmentally friendly its vehicles and continues to look for more ways to protect the environment — including when it comes to vehicle manufacturing.
Closed-Loop Recycling System
With the release of the 2021 Nissan Rogue, the eco-conscious automaker has found another way to reduce waste and pollution. The latest Rogue is the first vehicle produced by Nissan to successfully utilize a “closed-loop” recycling system for aluminum parts.
The closed-loop system involves the use of an aluminum alloy for certain parts of the Rogue, like the hood and doors. The scrap material from these parts is easier to collect and redistribute back to suppliers. The suppliers, in turn, can reuse the scrapped materials as components of the next shipment of aluminum alloy sheets, thus eliminating the need to gather new raw materials and ensuring nothing is wasted.
Using this lightweight aluminum alloy also improves the fuel economy of the Nissan Rogue, creating another means of helping the environment.
The 2021 Rogue production is just the start, as Nissan has plans to expand this closed-loop recycling system to the other vehicles in its lineup.
Here at Paul Miller Nissan, we are proud to carry vehicles that are focused on creating a healthier planet for future generations. We care about protecting our community, and eco-conscious transportation is a major factor in that. You can find the 2021 Nissan Rogue in our inventory now and support the brand’s efforts.
