Lansing Delta Township Assembly
Lansing Delta Township Assembly (GM LDT) is a General Motors automobile assembly factory in Delta Township, Michigan on land that is shared by both the nearby city of Lansing, and the township. It manufactures Saturn, Buick, Chevrolet and GMC vehicles.
Environmental features of the factory include:
- a 45% reduction in non-manufacturing water use, saving over 4 million gallons of water a year.
- a roof drain system which catches rain water and diverts to cisterns stored above the factory's restrooms, which is then used to flush toilets.
- having 25% of the plant's construction materials composed of recycled materials.
- leaving 50% of the site undeveloped
- a 20% reduction in energy used for lighting the plant by lowering overall lighting in areas such as aisles.
- the elimination of ozone-depleting substances used in any of the building’s heating and cooling, refrigeration, and fire suppression systems.
The factory grounds also contain a 75-acre (300,000 m2) wildlife area managed by the factory's Wildlife Habitat Team, who also hosts wildlife educational events for local community groups and schools.
