We face two major challenges in the 21st century:
digital transformation and ecological transition.
Ecological transition is an essential objective for humanity.
Digital technology is one of the greatest transformative forces of our time.
Lasermach is continuously working to use its innovative optical technology to develop breakthrough products while minimizing its environmental impact. Manufacturing Industry is requested to operate economically. In terms of sustainability this means to make responsible use of resources according to the economic principle.
Instead of “maximum profit from minimum capital” the term should be superseded by “maximum results (economically and ecologically) from minimum resources”.
The necessity of efficient application of resources advances further into the focus of corporative tasks in economy, research and politics. Within the framework of manufacturing the question has to be raised which possibilities exist to reduce the input ofresources as well as the emissions.
Against the background of statements like “. . . lasers are your best friend for a greener planet!” the ecological impact of lasers in materials processing fulfils most of the conditions for resource and energy efficient manufacturing due to it's specific characteristics like concentrated energy input and high thermal efficiencies.
Worldwide consumption and production — a driving force of the global economy — rest on the use of the natural environment and resources in a way that continues to have destructive impacts on the planet.
Economic and social progress over the last century has been accompanied by environmental degradation that is endangering the very systems on which our future development — indeed, our very survival — depends.
A few facts and figures:
Each year, an estimated one third of all food produced – equivalent to 1.3 billion tonnes worth around $1 trillion – ends up rotting in the bins of consumers and retailers, or spoiling due to poor transportation and harvesting practices.
If people worldwide switched to energy efficient light bulbs the world would save US$120 billion annually.
Should the global population reach 9.6 billion by 2050, the equivalent of almost three planets could be required to provide the natural resources needed to sustain current lifestyles.
Sustainable consumption and production is about doing more and better with less. Sustainable production will also contribute substantially to poverty alleviation and the transition towards low-carbon and green economies. It is also about decoupling economic growth from environmental degradation, increasing resource efficiency and promoting sustainable lifestyles.
This is Where EcoLener technology comes in and does much more with much less energy than any other laser source!
