Carbon Footprint Halved for Key Manufacturing Process

[Commitments and society] Published 19-04-2022

Gunnebo’s Halol factory is the largest of nine across the globe

Factory in India switches from diesel to natural gas, lowering its CO2 emissions

Gunnebo’s largest factory has more than halved its carbon footprint for a key manufacturing process by switching from diesel fuel to natural gas.

The plant in Halol, India, employs around 700 people and manufactures high quality ATM safes for international customers, as well as safe deposit lockers, vault and strong room doors, and other products.

The process of painting the steel involves spraying it with a powder coating which is then baked hard in a curing oven, demanding large amounts of fuel. By modifying the burner, the oven could switch to natural gas, which for this particular process reduces carbon emissions by a little over 50%.

“This is a small step in our sustainability journey and the lowering of our carbon footprint,” says Jasbinder Singh, Plant Head at Halol. 

Before the change of fuel, diesel consumption by the curing oven generated around 57 tonnes of carbon annually; after switching to natural gas, this has been reduced to 28 tonnes.

The project has also provided additional benefits such as lower fire hazard, increased productivity and cost savings.

“Over the years the Halol plant has taken many such steps which resulted in a reduction of our carbon footprint,” says Sabyasachi Sengupta, VP Asia. “This is just another example of how sustainability goals can be integrated into the core of our business processes to deliver value for all stakeholders.”
