Schwing Stetter India has always been finding ways to provide the latest technologies that improve machine performance and efficiency and focussing on fuel conservation and carbon reduction.

India’s construction industry can become more sustainable by using alternative fuels such as biodiesel, natural gas, and hydrogen, electrifying the equipment, installing telematics to monitor and optimize equipment usage, reducing weight of equipment, and using recycled materials in the design and construction of their machines. It is also important to educate the public about the importance of sustainability in the construction industry.

Carbon reduction strategy
Schwing Stetter India
We are developing and manufacturing more energy-efficient construction equipment, which use lesser fuel and produce fewer emissions. In fact, we are developing electric and hybrid construction equipment that uses alternative fuels such as biodiesel and natural gas. We are also working towards use of more recycled materials in our construction equipment to help reduce their environmental impact.

We believe in educating customers about the importance of sustainability and how they can reduce emissions from their construction projects. We are providing them information about our energy-efficient equipment. We are also investing in research and development of new sustainability technologies that can reduce emissions, improve energy efficiency, and ways to use recycled materials.

We are working with the government to develop and implement policies that promote sustainability in the construction industry, and support the development of renewable energy sources that can be used to power construction equipment.

Newer technologies to reduce greenhouse gases in equipment
Electrified construction equipment is becoming increasingly popular for reducing carbon emissions; plus, they are quieter, cleaner, and more efficient than diesel machines, and also incur lower operating costs. We have recently launched Shotcrete pump TSR 30.10 EV - a fully electrified version and the first in the country.

Schwing Stetter India’s R&D team is working on the usage of ethanol-based fuel in our SLM and Concrete Mixers to help reduce their carbon emission and their greenhouse effect. Biofuels are made from renewable sources such as biomass, vegetable oils, and animal fats. We also use green energy such as solar power in our factories to reduce the usage of conventional fuel; the kitchens in our canteens especially are completely flameless.

Connected machines for enhancing productivity and reducing carbon emissions
Schwing Stetter India has been using the connected machines technology extensively in our batching plants, transit mixers, and in our XCMG range of excavators and wheel loaders. Connected machines enable greater accuracy of production, reduce turnaround time, and keep track of equipment location, and monitor machine performance in any part of the world from a centralised location. Stakeholders in industry should be made aware of the benefits of connected machines which include improved efficiency, reduced fuel consumption, and increased safety.

We also need to develop standards for connected machines to make them more interoperable and easier to adopt. Currently, there is no single standard for connected machines in the construction industry; making it difficult for companies to adopt them, plus they need to be made more affordable. Incentives such as tax breaks, rebates, or grants by the government will also help promote such machines and make them more affordable.

Initiatives taken to reduce carbon emissions
  • Investing in research and development of new, more energy-efficient technologies, developing new ways to power construction equipment that use less fuel, such as electric and hybrid engines.
  • Working with suppliers to source more sustainable/recyclable/recycled materials such as plastics and metals.
  • Improving our manufacturing processes by using new technologies to make them more energy efficient.
  • Educating and training our employees on sustainability and on ways they can reduce their own emissions such as by carpooling or using public transportation.
