Volvo is coming right along with its plans to have its new green production plants operational soon. Volvo Trucks' plant in Tuve, Sweden, for example, will use five large wind power plants and a new biofuel plant to generate electricity and heat. Volvo will open its first CO2-free factory in 2007, and the Volvo Group will open two additional CO2-free factories by the end of 2008. When the plants generate more power than they can use, the excess will be fed back to the grid. All of this furthers Volvo's environmentally-friendly quest to make cleaner cars (like their diesel-electric hybrid) cleaner. The CO2-free factories were announced last year.
