Developing Sustainable Transportation Solutions: Remanufactured parts program to reduce 1,000 metric tons of carbon dioxide

This summer has broken records regarding temperature levels in different regions around the world. With growing concerns about climate change and its harmful effects on the planet, it is crucial that companies across industries prioritize sustainable initiatives, such as waste recycling and reducing carbon dioxide emissions. By adopting and promoting sustainable practices, companies not only reduce their carbon footprint, but also contribute to global efforts to combat climate change and its many repercussions.

For José Carlos Gomez, LAR Norte Sales Director for Thermo King, “The concept of sustainability today is not just a fad, but a practice that should be the daily life of companies and their brands. The ‘take, make and dispose’ model is no longer an option.”

Various programs and proposals are revolutionizing industries by reducing resource waste and increasing the useful life of their products by recycling them. These solutions and programs have great potential to innovate and improve sustainable practices; Setting new standards for environmental responsibility and setting the path to achieving a net-zero CO2 emissions scenario by 2050 (New Zealand).

Despite the importance of sustainability, only about 60% of companies in the industry have a sustainability strategy. Specifically, in the transportation temperature control sector; Thermo King, as a brand in the Trane Technologies family, has joined the “Gigaton Challenge,” which aims to reduce its customers’ CO2 emissions by 1 billion metric tons by 2030. In taking the second big step towards achieving this, Thermo King has promoted its Recycled Parts Program Manufacturing, which seeks to closely analyze the useful life cycle of the part to recover and reuse components according to high quality standards.

For Cummins’ new and remanufactured parts division, remanufactured products offer a significant advantage, requiring 85% less energy to produce; Allowing between 62 and 85% of the material to be reused, depending on the type of part.

In light of this new program, innovative and sustainable applications for end-to-end connected storage and transportation are envisioned, improving quality of life, helping deliver temperature-critical products to people around the world, safely and efficiently, and developing cutting-edge technologies in use. CO2 and modern manufacturing facilities with low environmental impact that continue to lead by example towards environmentally responsible transportation industry practices.
