Toyota has always been at the forefront of eco-friendly vehicles, and now it’s starting to emerge as one of the leaders in sustainable manufacturing processes as well. Last month, Toyota announced that its Kentucky plant has teamed up with Waste Services of the Bluegrass to generate power from local landfill waste, marking the region’s first business-to-business landfill gas to energy initiative. Toyota estimates that the locally-generated landfill gas will supply enough power each year to produce 10,000 vehicles.
