The General Motors Baltimore transmission plant, which will build the industry’s first two-mode hybrid transmission for GM’s full-size SUVs and pickups, has officially achieved “landfill free” status – meaning it will no longer send any waste from its production operations to landfills, it was announced Monday, August 27, 2007. The plant’s manufacturing process wastes are completely reused or recycled. (Photo by Tyler Mallory for General Motors)
