Subaru the Environment

Fuji Industries the maker of Subaru tackles the challenge of meeting tougher environmental standards a detailed corporate social policy that is at the heart of they do.

FHI president and CEO Takenaka says: To address issues, we set our management goal to an eco-friendly company. Based on the of offering our customers clean from a system of environmentally factories, logistics networks and we have been working to the global environment by developing a new plan for the environment called the FHI Conservation Program (fiscal 2002-2006). We have achieved results to date, particularly in reduction and energy conservation in the stage.

Since the Kyoto became effective in 2006, reduction of CO2 is required in industry, and consumer goods around the As a result of FHI’s plan for the the company has reduced CO2 levels further than planned by energy conservation at the plants and by a natural gas cogeneration system. FHI is focused on reducing CO2 emissions in Subaru motor vehicles by fuel economy through reduction technologies.

Although it is more vehicles, Subaru’s use 28 per cent less energy they did in 1990. By 2008 the will already meet economy standards in Japan, the States and Europe which do not to be met until 2010.

Producing ‘greener’ cars at all steps in the process at Subaru, development and design, through servicing and ultimately disposal at the end of the life. In January 2005, the law on End-of-Life Vehicles came force in Japan. FHI seeks to not comply with this law but develop products that are to recycle. By 2015 Subaru to be able to recycle 95 per cent of vehicle it manufactures.

The use of mercury, hexavalent and chromium has been from the manufacturing process and is only used at just 10 per of what it was a decade ago.

The themselves are now being designed and so they are easier to dismantle and the metal, glass, plastic and materials. Subaru, together most other major in Japan, has established a partnership to recycle fluorocarbons, airbags and difficult to deal with from vehicles.

95 per cent of outside suppliers also the same environment management as Fuji Heavy Industries’ own The types of plastics used are now subtly on the outside, rather the need to take the part off the car identifying what it is. Instead of dumped, the paint sludge the giant paint troughs all bodies go through is now used to vibration absorption panels for the of the vehicles.

Over the last eight wastage in the painting process has reduced by 57 per cent.

The motor is also using waste other industries. Nylon nets are being turned engine covers, while bumpers are being remanufactured cabin trim, battery splash trays for under the tailgate trims and luggage in wagons and hatches.

And longer service intervals less consumable products are used in the life of a vehicle.

It is now to produce electric power renewable energy sources less environmental impact, as solar, wind, water and power, but the challenge is how to store the for maximum efficiency and effectiveness. around 2002, the company millions of dollars into and joined with NEC Corporation to NEC Lamilion Energy Ltd (NLE) as a and development company for high-performance lithium-ion batteries.

Subaru Petrol/Electric Hybrid

At NLE, they worked on the of secondary batteries for hybrid electric vehicles, and fuel electric vehicles. Their high performance batteries are for ten years or approximately 240,000 km. called the NLE lithium-ion battery and its to recharge very quickly attention from Toyota Corporation which then 8.7 per cent of FHI’s shares in

This collaboration with has seen FHI determine some new to provide customers with to petrol-driven engines. Rather continue their own hybrid engine development programme at point, FHI has elected to adopt hybrid power train for the planned Subaru hybrid in the medium to long term.

In Subaru completed a prototype of an vehicle being jointly with Tokyo Electric Co. Inc. (TEPCO) – the Subaru Based on Subaru’s Japanese-market-only R1 car, the electric version has a top of 100 km/h and utilises thin, lithium-ion batteries capable of approximately 80 km on a single charge.

designed and manufactured the vehicle and developed a high-speed charger. In FHI was awarded the Minister of the Environment’s Commendation for Global Warming Activity for its development of the Subaru R1e vehicle in conjunction with Electric Power Co. Inc. and NEC Lamilion Energy, Ltd.

Another outcome from taking a shareholding in FHI has been ability to concentrate on developing first diesel engine. chief executive Kyoji said: “Because we’re a company, we had to choose between and diesel. Now that we have arrangement with Toyota, engine development and production are to be our priorities.”

Ethanol for Subarus

Most Subarus new in New Zealand since 1990 are of running on the ethanol blended now being introduced to the local

However any Japanese domestic models which have imported here second (i.e.). second hand imports — should not be run on the blended fuel.

These are only suitable for 3 percent fuels. The fuel being in New Zealand has a 10 percent ethanol

The 10 percent ethanol blended could cause damage to the line, fuel injector fuel pump or fuel of these second hand imports. The fumes from the fuel after combustion can have a harmful effect on the converter, the exhaust gas regulator and the

Those Subarus which can use the 10 ethanol blended fuel a 17 digit VIN number beginning either JF1 or JF2. The VIN number can be at the bottom of the central door on the passenger’s side of the car or in the engine

The second hand Japanese which should not use the ethanol fuel have VIN numbers with 7A8.

A small of models sold new in New Zealand use the 10 percent blended fuel. are.-
