New Maruti Suzuki cars to be sold in the country will be much more eco-friendly than before. The Indian automaker has started limiting the use of Substances of Concern (SoC) such as lead (Pb) and mercury (Hg) in its products. Maruti Suzuki aims to meet global standards of recycling and recovering of automotive materials by implementing International Material Data System (IMDS).
IMDS will help the brand analyse the use of recoverable and recyclable components in its mass-production vehicles. In this regard, Maruti Suzuki states that the all-new WagonR hatchback is 85% recyclable and 95% recoverable. This will be the same case for all the new Maruti cars to be launched in the future.
"Maruti Suzuki is always concerned about the environment. We are taking a pro-active step and voluntarily putting in place a global mechanism for controlling hazardous substances in our vehicles. With the implementation of globally accepted IMDS system, Maruti Suzuki will be ready to comply with ELV regulations when it is launched in India," shared Kenichi Ayukawa, MD & CEO of Maruti Suzuki.
Through IMDS implementation, the company can collect valuable data concerning the materials used in various vehicle manufacturing processes. This data can be collected, maintained, analysed and archived if a need arises in the future. IMDS will also help Maruti Suzuki meet nationally- and internationally-recognised End of Life Vehicles (ELV) legal obligations applicable to automotive manufacturers.
ELV obligations limit the use of lead, hexavalent chromium, cadmium and mercury in order to promote recycling and recovery of materials. The final result will be reduced pollution and biohazard levels which would be otherwise critical if such vehicles are carelessly abandoned or left for scrap.
Maruti Suzuki has also partnered up with certain vendors to frame an efficient SoC management system. Put in simple words, the company aims to be eco-friendly like never before.
Thoughts On New Maruti Cars Being More Eco-Friendly
It is to be noted that pollution caused by vehicles is not just limited to exhaust emissions. If a car is carelessly disposed of in our surroundings, the materials will start deteriorating with time and harmful elements will be released into the ecosystem; ultimately causing another form of pollution. The new eco-friendly initiative by Maruti Suzuki will help prevent this to a good extent.
