Honda To Spend US$165M On Greening North American Coating Plants

Nikkei. Honda Motor plans to spend more than ¥20 billion (US$165 million) by 2009 to make two of its coating facilities in North America more environmentally friendly.

Under the plan, production lines at Honda’s plants in Marysville, Ohio and Alliston, Ontario, Canada will shift to the use of water-based paint for the intermediate and final coating stages. Honda overhauled a coating line at the Marysville plant last January to reduce emissions of volatile organic compounds.
