During the recent climate summit that was held in Paris and was attended by almost every nation of the world, they all came down to a common ground and that is to reduce carbon emission and subsequently saving the earth from global warming. Well the term Global Warming has now become a big threat to the existence of every human being as we are all in some way or the other are getting adversely affected by it and it is high time that we all act to tackle the menace so that we can give a cleaner environment to the next generation. Heavy equipment has become a major contributor of emitting harmful carbon in the environment polluting it further and making lives riskier. The amount of construction happening all over the world and the number of heavy equipment used to work on each project can only talk aloud about the aftermath it can have on the climate.
The orthodox types of heavy equipment not only pollutes the environment but also proves to be unhealthy for the company’s expenses as it consumes lot of fuel to work continuously on the jobsite. This should be replaced by environment friendly machines that does not emit large amount of carbon and also consumes less fuel. Engineers are also working on machines that work on bio-fuel, biodegradable and things thereon. They have also introduced some heavy equipment that are very eco-friendly but when it comes to performance, it can hardly match the conventional ones. This is why they have not yet caught the attention of the big construction companies. Though many big construction companies eagerly want to take up eco-friendly machines; however, it is just that they also want those machines to perform faster which unfortunately is not the case for the time being.
The way forward is pretty simple. The engineers of heavy equipment construction companies have to work hard to manufacture a league of machines that has the capacity to work like the conventional machines and at the same time are also not posing any threat to the environment. As a matter of fact, they are already working towards it but getting a milestone is probably a bit far stretched. Secondly, the green heavy equipment will be very expensive as it will have all the latest technology that will cost more to the end user. This means that not everybody will be able to afford to buy them. This will result in just few construction companies taking up the onus to a cleaner environment and the rest will keep on polluting it.
This will definitely not serve the purpose and might further create a divide within the industry making things more complex. The solution to this will be with government intervening and announcing some kind of concessions to companies who are using environment friendly machines. This will boost other companies to follow suit and this is how more and more construction companies will adopt the idea of using green machines.
