In this episode, viewers learn how Hyundai creates high fashion from auto parts, Printpack protects perishables with greener packaging, Evoco uses plants to replace oil, Gerdau repurposes mega-tons of scrap metal, and Infineon creates semiconductors that help decarbonize planet Earth.
First, John goes to South Korea to find out how Hyundai works with fashion designers to transform seat covers, wipers, and wires into haute couture through its “Re: Style” program. It’s part of the car company’s overall commitment to building greener vehicles.
Next, John travels to Villa Rica, Georgia, to learn how Printpack stays ahead of the curve in producing sustainable packaging. Printpack’s light, flexible material protects all kinds of products, from food to medical supplies, using fewer resources.
Co-host Andrea Ocampo goes to Toronto, Canada to find out how Evoco uses plants, and not oil, to create low-impact, high-performance materials that support lower carbon emissions. Evoco’s researchers also developed plant-based leathers and plastics.
John visits Texas to explore how Gerdau, a leading global steel manufacturer, produces low-carbon steel that is transformed into machinery, construction materials, and heavy equipment from millions of tons of recycled scrap metal – minimizing greenhouse gas emissions.
Finally, John travels to Austin, Texas, and Silicon Valley, California to find out how Infineon semiconductor chips enable renewable energy, electric vehicles, cell phones, and more – which are all critical to decarbonizing our world.
