One philosophy that Honda follows is the 3R approach to conducting business: reduce, reuse, recycle. It comes to no surprise to us at Diamond Honda of Glendale to hear that the Japanese auto maker has made a remarkable breakthrough in this area.
Honda, in conjunction with Japan Metals & Chemicals Co., has found a new way to extract rare earth metals from nickel-metal hydride batteries that are commonly found in hybrid vehicles. The cool thing about this is that this is not an experiment for Honda, it is a process change that is ready to launch now.
We at Diamond Honda of Glendale, we know what you are thinking, I have never heard of this? and there is a reason for that. This is only one or many new processes that Honda is implementing. Honda has already been extracting materials like stainless steel from these hybrid batteries and this new process will take it one step further to ensure that they get all that they can out of the batteries.
Of course, that leaves us to wonder what the next step would be for Honda then. The company says that they'd like to be able to put their new extraction process to work on parts other than nickel-metal hydride batteries, which could result in more affordable Honda parts in the long run.
Diamond Honda of Glendale , located at 138 S. Glendale Ave. Glendale, CA 91205 , is excited to see what comes of this bold new initiative from Honda. And with that, we invite you to stay tuned, as we are dedicated to keeping you informed.
