"We are trying to get to a world that has zero emissions, and it's green, Ram Ramanujam, GM Plant Director said. "Even though we make engines, we are looking to make sure the engines we make are the most environmentally friendly that we can."

There are three GM plants and 1600 employees at the facility that make many of the engines you find in Chevy and GMC model cars.
