We all love you when several large companies that we love join together, because often the result of such collaborations is some unusual and extremely interesting product. More often than not, companies of the same direction are engaged in more or less similar affairs. However, how do you react to the fact that the collaboration took place between the two largest companies that have radically different spheres of activity? It is, as you understand from the name, about the fast food giant McDonald’s, as well as about one of the largest automotive giants – Ford.
But what can be cooperation on so many companies that are not alike? The answer is rather unexpected, but extremely pleasant and noble – the goal of the above cooperation is to care for the environment, in particular the fight against global climate change. The bottom line is that Ford will recycle McDonald’s coffee waste. Thus, instead of the fact that unsuitable coffee beans will simply be thrown away somewhere, thereby having a negative impact on nature, the aforementioned automobile company will direct these same beans to a more useful and practical channel. The fact is that Ford will send all of the above waste to its own laboratories, in which the grains will undergo total processing – they will be given a “second life”.
More specifically, coffee will create parts for their own machines. As both cooperating companies said, this move will reduce the emission of extremely harmful CO2 into the atmosphere. In general, this decision is more than correct, because the automobile industry is rightly considered one of the most "dirty" in terms of its impact on the environment. Well, this project, in turn, will allow both to make the production of vehicles more environmentally friendly, and save McDonald’s from the need for constant environmental pollution. Ford itself describes the new agreement as follows: “Every year, millions of pounds of coffee waste turn either into garden mulch, or charcoal, or even rot. The combined efforts of Ford and McDonald’s can provide a new life for a significant part of the above, this is in fact no one needs the material.
Together, we were able to find that coffee wastes can be made practical from a practical point of view, making them durable material, which in turn will allow us to significantly strengthen certain parts of our cars. When heating the above wastes to extremely high temperatures and under the condition of low oxygen content, mixing the resulting material with plastic and other various additives allows you to create almost completely environmentally friendly parts that are in no way inferior, and in some places even surpass the classic ones. ” I would like to believe that the undertaking of Ford and McDonald’s will be successful, and other manufacturers will follow a similar example.
