2013 Ford Living Roof At Rouge Center's Dearborn Truck Plant

Installed in 2003, the living roof on top of Ford's Dearborn Truck Plant is flourishing as an environmental touchstone amid the iconic Rouge Center. At 10.4 acres -- the size of eight football fields -- the living roof sustains a diverse ecosystem, removes CO2 from the atmosphere and reduces energy use at the F-150 assembly plant below. It also is part of an innovative storm water management system that reduces run-off and costs two-thirds less than a conventional treatment process.
