In addition to aluminum soda cans, Michael and Bill also worked on rebuilding the Ford Rogue Automotive plant. The two researchers rebuilt this factory to not only make it safe and more efficient for this generation, but for future ones also. Another example of a factory they built was a particular one in Germany where they were able to add skylights in to reduce the amount of electricity and also add a crosswind in to make the conditions more workable for the …show more content…
