How to ‘Go Green’ in the Manufacturing Industry

How to ‘Go Green’ in the Manufacturing Industry

Huron Automatic Screw Company offers insight into implementing new and innovative processes to create a more sustainable workplace.

In the current political climate, it has become apparent that the state of the environment is a high-priority concern for many people around the world. At Huron Automatic Screw Company, we share that concern. As a manufacturer involved in several industries that have an impact on the environment, such as the various facets of the transportation industry, it is our responsibility to make a conscious effort to go green. That’s why we believe in the continuous improvement of our methods and tools to create a more sustainable work environment.

The Push to ‘Go Green’

It seems only right that automotive and transportation manufacturers have a greater responsibility to go green due to the polluting nature of and high demand for their products. Huron Automatic Screw Company wants to offer a few tips that might help your business make the transition to sustainability:

  • Perform an Energy Audit of Facilities – This will identify the areas in the building where energy is being wasted, or harming the environment. With this information, manufacturers can make adjustments, such as switching to energy-efficient lighting products (automated motion lights are useful too), sealing air leaks in the building, and upgrading motors to greener models.
  • Reducing Waste – It’s very important to implement methods that carefully and consistently analyze production processes to monitor waste. By understanding where waste occurs and why, manufacturers can make sure every resource is being used as efficiently as possible.
  • Using Green Materials – One of the most obvious ways for manufacturers to create a more sustainable operation is by using environmentally-friendly materials. Though this is not possible in some situations—often the functionality of a product is dependent on the material—it’s important to take advantage when substituting for a greener material is an option.
  • Recycle and Re-Use Materials – Many manufacturers reduce waste and decrease material cost by recycling and re-using excess materials. In some cases, using raw materials cannot be avoided. However, if the project allows for it, companies can source raw materials in an environmentally-friendly fashion by getting them from waste streams, post-consumer waste, construction waste, or renewable agricultural sources.

Closely monitoring manufacturing procedures and inspecting facilities and machinery for efficiency is the key to transitioning to a sustainable work environment. Our staff at Huron Automatic Screw Company are trained to continuously do so in an effort to keep up with a transforming industry. We support the push toward sustainability and will continue to evolve with every innovation in motion to ‘Go Green’.
