The biggest contributors of Carbon emissions worldwide are the industrial sectors that produce materials. Today, industries across the globe are faced with lower and lower targets for CO2 emissions, in a bid to stop the climate crisis in its tracks.
The primary source of CO2 in manufacturing derives from the burning of fossil fuels, such as when machinery is used for production, material handling equipment is moved, or certain chemical reactions occur.
But, the excessive emission of CO2 really begins with other indirect factors. These range from frequent machine breakdowns caused by unplanned downtime, increased rejections, reworks needed due to production defects, and the improper optimisation of energy and utilities as a result of unoptimised routing.
K3|Engage’s upcoming event will explore how manufacturers can incorporate sustainable digitalisation into their core operations while retaining a full 360 degree view on their manufacturing plants.
Delegates who attend the event will be empowered to reduce their carbon footprints by leveraging technology alongside learning how to:
- Optimise production
- Improve quality
- Improve machine utilisation
- Optimise material handling
- Optimise energy and resource utilisation
