Ford Revolutionizes F-150 Truck Production Using Recycled Aluminum

The Aluminum-Alloy body of the Ford F-150 makes it one of the toughest vehicles on the road today. However, the use of aluminum doesn’t just make the F-150 tougher. It also makes Ford’s signature truck more environmentally-conscious as well.

According to a recent Ford press release, Ford can create 30,000 Ford F-150 trucks a month with recycled aluminum.

Ford recycles up to 20 million pounds of aluminum a month during the production of the Ford F-150 fleet of vehicles. That aluminum is then repurposed to help create even more F-150s.

In order to recycle up to 20 million pounds of aluminum, Ford uses a closed-loop manufacturing system to reuse the aluminum that is left over from previous manufacturing.

This use of recycled aluminum helps to avoid 95% of the greenhouse gas emissions that usually result from the production of aluminum in the automotive industry.

For a truck that’s tough, affordable, and environmentally friendly, the answer is clear: the Ford F-150!
