In the production process, die-casting machines mainly consume electrical energy, gas, and water. Among them, electrical energy consumption accounts for a large proportion. According to statistics, in 2023, the global die-casting machine industry’s electrical energy consumption reached billions of kilowatt-hours, accounting for a certain percentage of the entire manufacturing industry’s electrical energy consumption.
2、Carbon Emissions Status
The carbon emissions generated by die-casting machines during production mainly include greenhouse gases such as carbon dioxide and methane. It is estimated that in 2023, the global die-casting machine industry’s carbon emissions reached several million tons, accounting for a certain percentage of the entire manufacturing industry’s carbon emissions.
III. Energy Conservation and Emission Reduction Measures in the Die-Casting Machine Industry
1、Improving Energy Efficiency of Die-Casting Machines
Improving the energy efficiency of die-casting machines is crucial for achieving energy conservation and carbon emission reduction. By adopting high-efficiency and energy-saving motors, frequency converters, and other equipment, as well as optimizing the production process of die-casting machines, it is possible to effectively reduce their energy consumption. Additionally, regular maintenance and inspection of die-casting machines to ensure they operate at optimal conditions are also important measures for improving energy efficiency.
2、Adopting Clean Energy Sources
To reduce carbon emissions in the die-casting machine industry, clean energy sources can gradually replace traditional fossil fuels. For example, renewable energy sources such as solar and wind power can be used to provide electricity for die-casting machines, or clean energy sources like natural gas and liquefied petroleum gas can replace coal and heavy oil, which are high in carbon content.
3、Promoting Green Production Concepts
Promoting green production concepts in the die-casting machine industry, advocating circular economy and low-carbon economy, is an effective way to achieve energy conservation and carbon emission reduction. Enterprises can achieve green production by improving production processes, increasing resource utilization rates, reducing waste emissions, etc. At the same time, strengthening employee training on environmental awareness and improving their energy-saving and emission-reduction capabilities are also important measures for promoting green production concepts.
4、Policy Guidance and Support
Governments should increase policy guidance and support for the die-casting machine industry, formulate corresponding energy conservation and emission reduction policies and standards, and encourage enterprises to adopt advanced energy-saving technologies and equipment. In addition, governments can also use fiscal subsidies, tax incentives, and other means to support enterprises in carrying out technological transformation and green production with regard to energy conservation and emission reduction.
IV. Future Green Development Prospects of the Die-Casting Machine Industry
With the increasingly severe global climate change and environmental issues, the die-casting machine industry will face more stringent requirements for energy conservation and emission reduction in the future. The die-casting machine industry will move towards green, low-carbon, and efficient development to achieve sustainable development. This will be reflected in several aspects:
1、Continuous Breakthroughs in Technological Innovation
In the future, the die-casting machine industry will increase its efforts in technological innovation, develop more efficient and energy-saving die-casting machine equipment and processes to meet the needs of energy conservation and emission reduction. At Simultaneously, by introducing advanced technologies such as the Internet of Things and big data, realizing intelligentization and automation of die-casting machines can further improve their energy efficiency.
2、Formation of a Green Industry Value Chain
With the promotion of green production concepts, a green industrial value chain will gradually form in the die-casting machine industry, covering raw material procurement, production processes, product recycling, etc. This will help reduce energy consumption and carbon emissions throughout the entire industrial chain and improve resource utilization rates.
3、Strengthening International Cooperation
Facing global climate change and environmental issues, governments and enterprises around the world will strengthen cooperation to jointly address challenges related to energy conservation and emission reduction. In the future, the die-casting machine industry will enhance international technical exchanges and cooperation to jointly promote green development in the die-casting machine industry.
In conclusion, energy conservation and carbon emission reduction in the die-casting machine industry have become an important issue for its development in 2023. By implementing a series of practical energy-saving and emission-reduction measures, strengthening technological innovation, and enhancing international cooperation, the future die-casting machine industry will achieve green, low-carbon, and efficient sustainable development.
