Tech Advances In Green Cleaning For Business

Most Read

Did you know traditional cleaning corporations use over 6 billion pounds of chemicals? These chemicals are going into the Earth as waste from cleaning products. Technology, though, has greatly changed the way cleaning can be done, making it easier, more cost-effective, and even healthier for both humans and the Earth.

If you’re interested in making your business a little bit greener, it’s important to know what sort of tech advances you can take advantage of. Green cleaning is a revolutionary movement happening within the cleaning world. It is taking the simple and throwing it into higher-scale places, such as commercial and business-related buildings.

The point of green cleaning is to save the environment and reduce waste. That is why there is a move within green cleaning to use traditional cleaning items like baking soda and lemons along with water to clean. 

Smart Dispensers and Robots:

With so many technological discoveries and creations over the past decade, it is no surprise that there are monumental innovations in technology in green cleaning for business. Some of these include smart dispensers, robots, and lighting.

These are dispensers for hand soap, water, or even paper towels that are usually activated by movement underneath the dispenser. This allows for a smaller amount of waste and keeps the paper and water waste down exponentially.

The use of all-natural cleaning agents has also been partnered with smart dispensers making sure that only eco-friendly sanitation protocols are upheld.

During COVID-19, the use of robots to green clean has been popular. It reduces the risk of infection for a human by cleaning and makes the amount of time a person has to take to clean be cut in half.

Over 270,000 robots were used in 2019, creating a 61% increase in sales of robots. Disinfection and even picking up litter can be done by a robot, making it possible for the human employees to do different jobs than clean and risk catching COVID-19.

Solar-powered buildings and LED-powered lighting can help to reduce the waste of electricity and resources that are available. Making a switch to a more energy-efficient power system or just changing a lightbulb to a more efficient one can do wonders to help turn it into a green business. 

All-Natural Cleaners And Smarter Lights:

For starters, you can replace chemical cleaners and eco-friendly ones. Using harsh chemicals is not only bad for the environment, but it’s also bad for our lungs. Changing those cleaners from harsh chemicals to things like baking soda and warm water with lemon can help to keep harmful chemicals away from the Earth as much as possible.

Then, you can replace old things with updated and energy-efficient ones. As said with the LED lights, old lights can not only waste energy, creating bad news for the Earth, but they can also cost a lot of money to your business.

Switching to energy-efficient appliances and lights will keep costs down and save the Earth––all at once. From there, you can choose to add plant life into your office surroundings. Air purifying plants can be extremely beneficial to your employees and clients or even at your home.

Not only does the green foliage make you happy when you see it, but it also provides a natural way to filter and purify your air.

Lastly, you can train your employees to adopt greener cleaning methods. If you are the only one cleaning green, your work isn’t going that far. Be sure to train each employee or family member on how to clean green!

Now that you’re equipped with some idea of what sort of technological advances have been made toward a greener cleaning, it’s time to review how our business approaches cleaning. Choose which advances work best with your brand and your budget, so you can fully embrace green cleaning without sacrificing your finances or your image.

COP28 UAE: SANY Promotes Green Manufacturing Transformation, Takes Concrete Action to Tackle Climate Challenges

CHANGSHA, China, Nov. 23, 2023 /PRNewswire/ -- SANY Group, ("SANY"), a globally leading enterprise of the high-end equipment manufacturing industry, is accentuating advancing sustainable development and the green manufacturing transformation of the heavy machinery industry, ahead of the COP28 UAE, that is set to take place from November 30 to December 12 in Dubai. The theme of the 13-day program this year is "Actionism," calling for people to rise to meet the climate change challenges.

The COP28 will center on four major paradigm shifts – namely accelerating the transition from fossil fuels, agreeing on climate finance shifts, emphasizing the role of people and nature in climate action, and ensuring the summit is an inclusive event that women, indigenous people, local communities, youth, countries and more can all be a part of.

SANY is responding actively and positively to the summit's agenda with concrete actions to promote the transformation of green manufacturing, bringing sustainable solutions to the industries of mining, construction, wind power, and more.

Taking green actions to build a sustainable future

SANY is vigorously expanding the use of green energy (renewables such as solar and wind) in production processes to reduce the reliance on traditional energy sources, lower carbon emissions, and support climate change actions. It has adopted multiple initiatives, especially in accelerating the R&D and application of wind energy, hydrogen, and electrification solutions, and achieved significant results.

SANY's subsidiary SANY Renewable Energy has been investing in and constructing wind farms to boost the proportion of wind power in the energy structure, through intelligent upgrades in manufacturing and creating intelligent workshops. By doing this, SANY Renewable Energy has reduced the overall unit energy consumption and carbon emissions by 15 percent compared to pre-upgrade.

In 2022, SANY has added more than 3,000 energy metering connections. SANY built China's first intelligent mixing station park and invested 3.22 million yuan in photovoltaic construction that will produce 900,000 kWh of power annually. The park will cut 887 tons of carbon emission, 242 tons of dust emissions, 26.7 tons of sulfide, and 13.4 tons of nitric oxide to achieve synergetic development of intelligent manufacturing and environmental conservation.

A total of 11 subsidiaries of SANY have installed photovoltaic power generation equipment, with clean energy usage amounting to 16.013 million kWh.

SANY is actively engaged in the R&D of hydrogen fuel cell technology to improve battery efficiency, reduce cost, and boost the production and storage capabilities, while expanding the applications of hydrogen energy.

Innovation-driven climate action tackles industry bottlenecks

Through establishing a green supply chain, SANY adopts renewable materials and environmentally friendly technologies to reduce resource waste and improve the sustainability of the supply chain.

SANY continues to improve the long-term mechanism for pollution prevention and control, strengthen the control of waste emissions including water, gas, and other hazardous substances, and be cautious of business and operation actions that could damage the ecological environment. In 2022, the group's wastewater and gas emissions met the standard rate of 100 percent, with a 100 percent compliance rate for hazardous waste disposal.

The group is also pushing for using environment-friendly materials to minimize pollution, so that the carbon reduction throughout the product life cycle also includes materials. In 2022, its VOCs emission density was 0.0011 tons per million revenue, a 39.71 percent reduction from the base year.

Meanwhile, the continuous upgrade of production techniques and processes, promotion of energy conservation technologies, and advancement of low-carbon technology development are not only playing key roles in improving production efficiency, but also reducing carbon footprint and aims to reach the "dual-carbon" goals.

Calling for the public's participation

SANY has been carrying out training programs and campaigns centered on environmental protection for employees, while further raising community engagement in terms of green, low-carbon, community-friendly, and educational innovation agendas. In 2022, the company employees completed 687.4 hours of volunteer work, and SANY invested 9.75 million yuan in the year to support 15 public welfare projects.

SANY Construction Industry is leading the green technology application in urban infrastructure construction to accelerate the sustainable development of cities and building intelligent cities, green transportation systems, and energy-conserving architectures to reduce energy consumption, improving urban environment quality and people's livelihoods.

In terms of biodiversity and sustainable development, SANY emphasizes the conservation of soil, ocean, crops, and animals to create a better future, and advocates a circular economy to decrease the waste of resources.

In the context of increasingly severe issues of global climate change, SANY, as a leader in the green industry, is committed to promoting sustainable development and actively joining global efforts to address climate change through comprehensive initiatives such as green supply chains, green energy, and carbon emission reduction.
