As part of its energy-saving efforts, BBAC installed solar panels on the roof of its new assembly shop to generate more than 3 million kilowatt-hours of electricity a year, equivalent to saving 1,200 tons of coal consumption and about 3,000 tons of carbon dioxide emissions per year.

In addition, this new assembly shop is designed with a geo-exchange heating and cooling system which helps to reduce the emission of carbon and reduces total energy consumption by 40 percent.

BBAC's rainwater collection system covers 1.6 million square meters of its facilities and minimizes water consumption by allowing up to 800,000 tons to be reused annually - a significant contribution to social responsibility. And to further minimize the emission of volatile solvents harmful to the environment during the vehicle painting process, BBAC will be applying a state-of-the-art process to its new paint shop to dispose of pollutants by condensation and then combustion, bringing the added benefit of converting pollutants to heat energy for reuse.

Even the small details have been worth working on: the company has replaced halogen lamps with Low Voltage Discharge Lamps to save over 50 percent of lighting costs.

BBAC aims to continue investing in the installation of environment-friendly technology in its manufacturing facilities, with a longer-term green strategy representing Daimler's trusted and sustainable partnerships in China.
