It aims to set a transformative example by preventing emission of over one million tonnes of CO2 in the next 5 years.

Blue Energy Motors Claims Record In Emission Management mobility outlook

Blue Energy Motors, which is engaged in green truck manufacturing, has said that it has achieved a milestone as its fleet of trucks has successfully prevented over 2,500 tonnes of CO2 emissions since its inception. This amounts to approximately 30% reduction of emissions from the air, said a company release.

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 by 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,' the release said.

Surpassing 2500 tonnes 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 1million tonnes of CO2 in the 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,” said Anirudh Bhuwalka, CEO of Blue Energy Motors, in a release.

'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,' the release said.

'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 the logistics and transportation industry,' the release further said.
