Solutions for avoiding emissions
How Blue Competence reduces CO2 emissions
By providing energy-efficient and resource-efficient technologies, the mechanical engineering industry has considerably reduced industrial emissions over the last 10 years. So we have not just made a substantial contribution to achieving the climate protection specifications set out in the Kyoto Protocol, but are already laying the foundations for achieving further ambitious climate protection targets today.
climate protection targets today. Compared with 1998, German industry was able to avoid 71 million tonnes of specific CO2 emissions in 2008 by employing innovative machinery and systems. By 2018, it is anticipated that it will be possible to save 198 million tonnes of CO2 emissions each year by employing modern mechanical engineering technologies. This is equivalent to roughly a quarter of all the annual emissions of carbon dioxide in Germany.
