Ford & McDonald’s Converting Coffee Waste Into Car Parts

For over a decade, Ford Motor Company has been working hard to replace traditional petroleum-based plastics in its vehicles with bio-based materials and byproducts. The most recent development from Ford’s scientists is converting coffee waste into vehicle parts like headlamp housings.

Millions of pounds of coffee chaff, the dried skin that comes off of coffee beans during the roasting process, is generated every year. McDonald’s has partnered with Ford to provide this useful waste product, which Ford is able to mix with plastic and other additives to create vehicle parts.

In addition to being more sustainable, these parts are about 20 percent lighter and take less energy to make, while still meeting the quality specifications needed for a variety of interior and under hood components.

This is another great example of how companies can work together to reduce waste and achieve global sustainability. Ford has also worked with companies like Heinz since 2014 to use tomato skins in the production of wiring brackets and other vehicle parts.

2019 Ford Edge an IIHS Top Safety Pick

The Insurance Institute for Highway Safety has named the redesigned 2019 Ford Edge a Top Safety Pick after it received “good” ratings in all six of the areas tested. Standard safety features like Pre-Collision Assist with Automatic Emergency Braking have also proved effective in avoiding frontal collisions at speeds under 25 mph.

Several different aspects of the vehicle are tested by the IIHS, including body structure, crash prevention features, safety restraints and headlight design. Each item tested contributes to the overall safety of a vehicle, and the Ford Edge with available LED projector headlamps with curve-adaptive technology did very well in all tests.

Ford has made Co-Pilot360 standard on all Ford Edge models, which gives drivers more confidence on the road with a suite of active safety features. The IIHS has rated the Edge’s front crash prevention technology as “superior for its ability to react to an imminent crash with another vehicle.”

If you would like to learn more about the 2019 and 2020 Ford Edge, visit us today at Tommie Vaughn Ford in Houston, TX and take one for a test drive.
