Processing industries are one of the major sources of carbon emissions in the world. These industries are responsible for producing products from raw materials and often involve large amounts of energy. The combustion of fossil fuels to power these processes leads to the release of carbon dioxide and other greenhouse gases into the atmosphere. The burning of coal, oil, and natural gas for energy production is the single largest source of global carbon dioxide emissions. Additionally, the production and transport of materials, as well as the disposal of waste products, can also contribute to the release of carbon dioxide.
For e.g., when 1 kg of steel is made, it emits approximately 1.85 kilograms of CO2. This amount of emissions are significantly higher than the emissions associated with other materials such as aluminium, which produces only 0.45 kg of CO2 per kg of aluminium. Steel production is a significant source of emissions because of its high energy intensity, as well as its reliance on fossil fuels for its production.
To reduce these emissions, process industries were planning a variety of strategies.
- One strategy is to switch to renewable energy sources, such as solar, wind, and hydropower. This will help reduce emissions from the burning of fossil fuels. Additionally, process industries can improve the efficiency of their production processes. This can include implementing energy-saving technologies and optimizing the use of resources.
- Another Strategy is to take steps to reduce emissions through waste reduction and recycling. By reducing the amount of waste produced, process industries can reduce their CO2 emissions.
- And the latest approach is the “Circular economy”, which on reducing waste and maximizing the use of resources. It is based on the idea of creating closed-loop systems where materials are reused and repurposed rather than discarded. In industries, this means implementing strategies that focus on reusing, sharing, repairing, and recycling materials. This approach reduces waste and increases efficiency, resulting in cost savings and a more sustainable business model. Additionally, it can help companies become more competitive in their respective markets. By investing in circular economy practices, companies can become more efficient and reduce their environmental footprint.
And how Goospares helps to achieve net zero?
Goospares is a platform that helps businesses, organizations, and individuals achieve net zero by providing them with the Circular Economy processes and strategies needed to reach their sustainability goals. Goospares buys out your excess inventories and sells them to industries in need, which is a great way to maximize profits for both sellers and buyers. This is a great chance for industries to purchase the goods at a lower cost than if they had to purchase them from the original supplier.
