Tesla Giga Mexico is set to become the world’s lowest water-consuming Car factory, as announced by Mexican Foreign Minister Marcelo Ebrard. Tesla has always been committed to reducing its environmental impact, and the new factory in Nuevo León is no exception. The company has already developed solutions that will achieve this goal, but the details are still unknown.
The delegation visited the site, and the photos and videos shared by Ebrard show the Governor of Nuevo León, Samuel Alejandro García Sepúlveda, and the team arriving in three Tesla cars. The enthusiasm for Tesla‘s arrival in the state was clear, and the caption to the video stated that the Tesla factory will become the world’s lowest water-consuming Car factory.
According to data from chemical multinational DuPont, the automotive industry uses almost 40,000 gallons of water to produce one Car. While Nuevo León is a water-scarce state, Tesla has been working on a solution to the problem of not having enough water to use in production. The company has already said several times that it has found a way to significantly save water consumption in Germany.
The new technology is likely to be applied at Giga Mexico as well. Manuel Salas Flores, CEO of Mexican water engineering firm Cipro, suggests that the manufacturer’s plan is likely to include three familiar water solutions. The first involves the use of reused water, treated water, or treated wastewater. The second suggests that Tesla is looking to optimize all vehicle manufacturing processes to minimize water use. The third assumes that the company will recycle all the water it uses.
Tesla Giga Mexico is set to become the world’s lowest water-consuming Car factory, and this is yet another example of the company’s commitment to sustainability and environmental responsibility. Tesla will continue to explore new ways to reduce its environmental impact and lead the way in energy-efficient manufacturing.
