  1. Ethylene Glycol (CAS No. 107-21-1)
Statement of Intent
Ethylene Glycol is currently received and used in four processes. The substance is a component of a product going into the finished good. The use of the substance is determined corporately, by the head office located outside of Canada. As such, HINO Canada does not intend to substantially reduce the use of Ethylene Glycol at the facility. It is expected that the use of the substance will increase based on anticipated increased production. Reduction initiatives taken in the past included, the purchasing of ethylene glycol reduced coolant. As mentioned, the coolant used is determined corporately in Japan. Therefore, the coolant cannot be changed without corporate approval. As this substance is not created here, there is no intent to reduce the manufacture of this

substance.

Objectives
As there is no intent to decrease the use of this product, there is no objective to reduce the substance. HINO intends to continually find ways to improve the efficiency in the use of the substance by identifying realistic options and analyzing the technical and economic feasibility of the defined options, to determine the best methods suited to meet the current needs of the company.
Description of Why the Substance is Used:
Ethylene glycol (CAS 107-21-1) – a component of the coolant added to the engines after assembly (at the filling process), with a small (insignificant) portion destroyed upon combustion testing. This product is used to provide engine cooling, and is necessary for the operation of the vehicle. The coolant type is determined by the head office in Japan. The coolant containing the Ethylene Glycol is added to the radiator using a pumping system through a dedicated pipeline. The material is delivered by the contracted supplier

filling a defined specific tote in the chemical holding area.

Description of Options to be Implemented:
No option chosen.

Rationale: Option 1 Not technically feasible at this time, to replace the Ethylene Glycol with Propylene Glycol. The substance is a component of a product going into the finished good. The use of the coolant containing Ethylene Glycol is determined corporately in Japan. Therefore, the coolant cannot be changed without corporate approval. The company would have to change the product requirements at the corporate level, and test to see if it meets requirements. It is expected that the use of the substance will increase based on anticipated increased production.

Rationale: Option 2 – The option of replacing the manual handling of the substance with dedicated piping has already been implemented.

Rationale: Option 3 – Not technically feasible at this time to capture and reuse the “spent” coolant. The waste material could contaminate the pure product.

Estimated Reductions for each Option: Not applicable Timeline for Achieving Estimated Reductions: Not applicable

Projected Effectiveness of the Reduction Plan
As there is no reduction plan in place at this time, this section is not applicable.

This plan summary accurately reflects the Toxic Substance Reduction Plan that has been prepared by LD – 50 Enterprises Inc. and HINO Motors Canada Ltd. For Ethylene Glycol, dated October 2013, and updated in 2017, for 2016.

  1. Methanol (CAS No. 67-56-1)
Statement of Intent
Methanol is currently received and used in four processes. The substance is a component of a product going into the finished good (windshield washer fluid). The amount of the substance is determined corporately, by the head office located outside of Canada. As such, HINO Canada does not intend to substantially reduce the use of Methanol at the facility. It is expected that the use of the substance will increase based on anticipated increased production. The amount of windshield washer fluid used cannot be changed without corporate approval. As this substance is not created here, there is no intent to reduce the manufacture of this substance.
Objectives
The company intends to increase the use of the windshield washer fluid due to increased production, therefore there is no reduction objective. HINO intends to continually find ways to improve the efficiency in the use of Methanol by identifying realistic options and analyzing the technical and economic feasibility of the defined options, to determine the best methods suited to meet the current needs of the company.
Description of Why the Substance is Used
Methanol (CAS 67-56-1) – a component of the windshield washer fluid added after assembly (at the filling process), with a small amount used up during testing. This (insignificant) amount is captured in the reused leak testing water or picked up by the floor scrubber and disposed. This product is used to provide the product dealer with all the necessary fluids being available upon delivery. The amount added is per a company standard. The windshield washer fluid containing the Methanol is added to the windshield washer fluid reservoir using a pumping system through a newly developed pipeline. The material is delivered by the contracted supplier filling a defined specific tote in the chemical holding area.
Description of Options to be Implemented
No option chosen.

Rationale: Option 1 Not technically feasible at this time to replace Methanol with another substance. The company would have to change the product requirements at the corporate level, and determine if it meets customer requirements.

Rationale: Option 2 – The option of replacing the manual handling of the substance with dedicated piping has already been implemented.

Rationale: Option 3 – Not technically feasible at this time to capture and reuse any lost product. The lost material at testing is insignificant, and there is no way to recapture the material.

Estimated Reductions for each Option: Not applicable Timeline for Achieving Estimated Reductions: Not applicable

Projected Effectiveness of the Reduction Plan
As there is no reduction plan in place at this time, this section is not applicable.

This plan summary accurately reflects the Toxic Substance Reduction Plan that has been prepared by LD – 50 Enterprises Inc. and HINO Motors Canada Ltd. For Ethylene Glycol, dated October 2013.
