Blue Energy Motors announces a significant milestone on the Journey of Decarbonizing the Commercial Vehicle Industry in India
Telugu super news,National, January 24, 2024: Blue Energy Motors, a pioneer in green truck manufacturing, celebrates the International Day of Clean Energy on January 26, coinciding with India’s Republic Day, by highlighting a significant milestone as its fleet of trucks has successfully prevented over 2500 tonnes of CO2 emissions since its inception. This amounts to approximate 30% reduction of emissions from the air, an accomplishment that symbolizes a tangible contribution towards a cleaner environment, reduced carbon footprint, and a sustainable future.
In India, the logistics sector is the third most CO2 emitting sector, with about 14% share of emissions. Within logistics, heavy trucking contributes to 45% of total CO2 emissions. To address this challenge, zero-emission trucks (LNG or battery-operated) have the potential to cut down at least 2.8-3.8 gigatons of CO2 emissions between present to 2050. Aligned with this idea, Blue Energy Motors’ commitment to decarbonisation has created a significant impact, equivalent to the positive environmental impact of CO2 absorption by 100,000 trees in one year.
Commenting on this development, Anirudh Bhuwalka, CEO of Blue Energy Motors said, “Surpassing 2500 tons of CO2 emission reduction by our LNG truck fleet is a milestone that underscores our commitment to decarbonizing the industry and contributing to India’s sustainability targets. This Republic Day, as we embrace the International Day of Clean Energy, our journey symbolizes a green transition, marking a momentous step towards a cleaner, greener future for our nation and the planet. We take this as an opportunity to collectively work towards achieving the goal of sustainability for our environment. By leveraging alternate fuel technologies, we aim to set a transformative example for the industry by preventing emission of over 1mn tons of CO2 in next 5 years, extending our commitment beyond numbers to foster environmental responsibility. As we celebrate this milestone, let it be a call to action for stakeholders this Republic Day to unite in action for a better future.”
The emission reduction statistics of LNG trucks highlight their environmental impact, with a notable 30% decrease in CO2 emissions compared to diesel counterparts. Additionally, these trucks contribute to a cleaner atmosphere by reducing noise pollution by up to 30%, Carbon Monoxide by up to 70%, Sulphur Oxide by up to 100%, Nitrogen Oxide by up to 59%, and Particulate Matter by up to 98%. A single LNG truck, covering an average distance of 80,000 km in a year, can significantly cut down emissions, showcasing the tangible benefits of this green transportation solution.
Shifting to green trucks can cut down CO2 emissions, lessening the adverse impact of commercial vehicles on our environment. While in 2023 greenhouse gas emission rates emitted for every unit increase of gross domestic product (GDP) has dropped by 33% in 14 years due to the use of renewable energy and reforestation, adopting green trucking will further help reduce these emissions from logistics and transportation industry. As Blue Energy Motors continues its journey, its efforts in reducing atmospheric CO2 stand as a beacon of sustainable practices in the transportation sector. These endeavours promise a new era of eco-conscious logistics, proving that green technology and commercial success can go hand in hand.
