The industrial sector, which includes the manufacturing industry, accounts for roughly one fifth of the global greenhouse gas emissions. Adding to that, the industrial sector consumes approximately half of the world’s energy resources. There is therefore an immediate need for manufacturing companies to more efficiently use the Earth’s limited resources in a more sustainable manner while minimizing impacts on the environment measured in terms of carbon footprint.
Innovation and technological progress are key to finding lasting solutions to both environmental and economic challenges. Companies need to re-imagine how to create and capture value in this new environment. Running a sustainable and profitable manufacturing process will require holistic and sustained insight and intelligence to better utilize given resources, increase energy efficiency and reduce waste and CO2 process-driven emissions. And achieve this while maintaining profitability.
Atlas Copco is committed to science-based targets. In doing so we act to decouple economic growth from environment degradation, increase productivity and with that resource efficiency, driving more sustainable manufacturing processes. In short, helping ourselves and our customers do more with less.
Sustainability is a key factor in modern day industrial manufacturing. Let us share our insights, experiences and knowledge to help you drive your manufacturing processes in a more sustainable way.

Eco-design. Industrial manufacturing is coming full circle
With customers, partners and governments increasingly requiring industrial manufacturers to minimize their environmental impact, sustainability is becoming a matter of survival. But a commitment to science-based targets for reducing carbon emissions or, carbon neutral targets, must be backed by credible actions. The concept of eco-design offers industrial manufacturers a powerful opportunity to walk the talk.

Gap filler: Powerful compound for higher performance
Temperature management plays a key role for the high-voltage batteries of electric vehicles. Battery cells can only deliver maximum performance within a certain temperature range and must not overheat. In order to effectively transfer the heat caused by cell operation to the surroundings, a thermal compound is applied to the battery tray – this is a critical step in the joining process.
The importance of air for an efficient installation
Having selected the correct tool for your job, some additional effort must be spent on the air infrastructure.
