Danfoss Industries Pvt Ltd., a leader in energy efficient technologies in its efforts to support India’s roadmap to decarbonization, in association with CII- Godrej Green Building Council launched a report on “Decarbonization of Indian Industrial Sector” at MMA Annual Conference 2022, Chennai.
The report shares a snapshot of how the Indian industrial ecosystem currently operates with respect to carbon emissions. The report provides key insights on the methods to reduce carbon emissions, with special focus on key industries such as paper, cement, steel, textiles and chemicals. These pathways if implemented can help drastically reduce emissions helping India meet its sustainability goals.
Ravichandran Purushothaman, President – Danfoss India Region said “As a sustainable organization serving the world’s energy efficiency needs for decades now, we at Danfoss, deeply resonate with India’s strong commitment towards decarbonization and sustainability. A holistic approach among all organizations in the Indian manufacturing sector to solve the global problem of climate change is the need of the hour. We thank CII GBC for this timely report which showcases the importance of Decarbonization as the main path to India’s sustainability and Energy efficiency being the first fuel for us in this journey. Together, let us ensure a green and sustainable tomorrow for India.”
Findings of the report indicate that through current available technologies and energy efficiency measures, Industries can double the reduction of CO2 emissions from current levels in the next 15 to 20 years. Newer technologies such as CCUS, H2 will find larger offtake after 2035 onwards within industries. Hence, Energy Efficiency adoption will play a huge role in India’s Decarbonization journey, contributing nearly 40% of the overall industrial emission reduction.
