Reducing waste and energy consumption to achieve long-term sustainability

Reducing waste and energy consumption to achieve long-term sustainability

June 9, 2023 3:04 pm

Rahul Jain, Director, Crayon Motors briefs, is constructing a 100,000 sq. ft. manufacturing facility and developing smart manufacturing systems to monitor and control energy usage in real-time, reducing waste and increasing efficiency.

How do automation, AR and VR technologies assist manufacturers’ performance?
The implementation of automation has resulted in increased efficiency, reduced errors, and improved productivity. The Internet of Things has played a crucial role in monitoring and optimising the supply chain, resulting in decreased lead times and heightened customer satisfaction. Additionally, integrating augmented reality (AR) and virtual reality (VR) has allowed us to enhance product design and customer experience, providing a more immersive and interactive platform for our customers. Overall, these technologies have allowed us to improve our performance, cut expenses, and offer better products and services to clients.

What developments have taken place in your manufacturing facilities?
Our primary goal at the moment is to launch our high-speed scooters. We plan to release four new products early next year. The process for conducting trials, testing, and approvals for the entire product line is now being completed. We are also developing our drivetrains, which will last longer and consume less energy while suitable for Indian roadways. We are constructing a 100,000 sq. ft. manufacturing facility beside our existing unit. We are constantly working towards innovative solutions to better cater to our customers.

Please discuss what technologies have helped manufacturing units reduce waste and energy consumption.
We understand the significance of decreasing waste and energy consumption to reduce environmental impact and achieve long-term sustainability. To that aim, we have deployed several unique technologies that have assisted us in meeting these objectives. For example, we deploy cutting-edge software solutions to optimise manufacturing processes and eliminate material waste. In addition, we have developed smart manufacturing systems that allow us to monitor and control energy usage in real time, reducing waste and increasing efficiency. We are committed to reducing our environmental footprint while providing high-quality, sustainable electric transportation solutions to our clients using these technologies.

Please discuss manufacturing systems to monitor and control resource consumption and minimise environmental impact.
We employ intelligent manufacturing systems to monitor and manage our resource utilisation in real-time, reducing waste and enhancing efficiency. Our dedication to sustainable development and minimising environmental impact is demonstrated through constant innovation and the utilisation of cutting-edge technologies. Additionally, we actively contribute to environmental preservation by implementing rainwater harvesting systems and initiating tree planting campaigns upon selling our products, among other initiatives to create a positive impact.

How do skilling and training help sustainable manufacturing?
We can improve our manufacturing processes, eliminate waste, and increase efficiency by investing in our workers and providing them with the required skills and expertise. Production, now more than ever, is becoming hyper-competitive. Thus, one needs to get it right the first time. Upskilling and training help here. Further, they improve the organisation’s ability to serve its customers much better and more effectively. 

What specific practices can reduce environmental impact?
We follow a comprehensive approach to sustainable manufacturing encompassing the entire product lifecycle, from design and development to production and end-of-life disposal. Specifically, we focus on reducing our environmental impact using energy-efficient technologies, materials, and manufacturing processes. We work closely with our suppliers to ensure compliance with our sustainability standards. 

How does Crayon Motors plan to diversify its product lineup to include electric mobility solutions?
Our plans involve diversifying our product lineup to encompass various electric mobility solutions, such as e-bikes and rickshaws. We also plan to expand our dealers and distributors network to the PAN India level. Furthermore, we remain committed to ongoing research and development, focusing on advancing drive trains, batteries, and other crucial components. We are actively engaged with people working in these areas and working on developing newer and more efficient products.
