Leading the Transition with Green Solutions
Sustainability is under the spotlight in many machine-driven industries. The benefits of moving towards greener technologies are evident regarding the environment, but they can also bring significant business advantages for the operators. At Atlas Copco, we are developing innovative designs to help our partners achieve a greater level of sustainabilty and optimize operation in the process.
Nowadays, when many claim to be at the forefront of change, we have developed a portfolio of solutions that target sustainability while delivering better efficiency and contributing to a lower total cost of ownership (TCO) than traditional alternatives.
Challenges and Solutions
Besides CO2, the international organisms' primary pollution targets in engine exhaust emissions are particulate matter (PM), and ozone precursors of nitrogen oxides (NOx) and hydrogarcbons (HC).
We aim to reduce the emissions from direct operations by 46% by 2030, compared to our 2019 baseline. We also target to reduce our value chain emissions, mainly the carbon impact of products in use, by 28%.
Relying on renewable sources can reduce operational costs, emissions and fuel consumption by up to 100%. Our green products work hand in hand with renewables!
Batteries as an alternative
The recent developments in high-density lithium-ion batteries provide manufactures an alternative way of addressing sustainability. This technology enables operation in emissions-free and noise-sensitive locations.

The path to sustainable pumping
One vital piece of equipment that can go a long way towards positively contributing to improved sustainability is dewatering pumps. Various factors should be considered, such as reducing downtime, improving serviceability, reducing emissions, legislation, and ensuring the pump is properly sized to operate most efficiently.
Renewable energy storage systems to power the future
The most efficient way to store – and deliver – energy coming from renewable sources is through battery-based renewable energy storage systems. The more battery storage for renewable energy that is available the less there will be a need for the conventional power sources of the past.
Solar energy storage – getting the most out of the sun
A key factor in this transition to low-carbon energy is the adoption of renewable energy sources, and solar energy deserves particular attention. The problem, however, is now to harness that energy and use it effectively. To make sure the maximum amount of energy is captured and used, the only viable option is solar energy storage.
Sustainable quarries are the future
Emission norms are changing operations in the entire construction industry, including quarries. In the journey towards stronger compliance with emission standards, the focus is now way beyond only health and safety regulations for operators. While productivity and efficiency remain the key priorities, the need for a balance with more sustainable solutions is now becoming more of a need than an option.

Working underground with an E-Air and an Energy Storage System
At the heart of Brussels, Belgium, construction company Jan De Nul is building a new subway line and station. A complex project, with underground construction in the middle of a vibrant city. Sustainability is high on Jan De Nul’s agenda so when Atlas Copco gave them the chance to try out an electric mobile compressor with Atlas Copco Energy Storage System, they immediately saw the possibilities.
Atlas Copco provides reliable power to a German Covid vaccination centre
Two Atlas Copco's QAS 5 Stage V generators and a ZenergiZe energy storage system have been powering a Covid vaccination center in Germany, Impfezentrum Münster. These solution ensured that vaccinations were carried out on time.
Electrifying rental fleet for cleaner compressed air and lower running costs
When Atlas Copco launched their first electric mobile compressor, Arentis, an industrial equipment rental company in the Netherlands, didn’t hesitate to take the compressor into their fleet. Arentis and its customer explain how electrifying their compressor fleet contributes to cleaner and more cost-efficient operation.
