“Sustainable manufacturing is the creation of manufactured products through economically sound processes that minimize negative environmental impacts while conserving energy and natural resources. Sustainable manufacturing also enhances employee, community and product safety”
Bethliving as a company has Environmental and sustainability built into its products and designs. But we are not stopping there we have this goal driving or manufacturing process as well. Here is a look at how every aspect of our manufacturing is guided by this lighthouse.
ZERO Carbon manufacturing plant.
Our manufacturing approaches every process with two critical tasks. Use technologies that consume lesser power. as a consequence, we have most of our process driven by Servomotors. Besides that, there is a specific program in our manufacturing process to use compressed air as a tool. Literally, every hand tool in our manufacturing process is pneumatic and air-driven. Making the energy needs less and also keep the shop floor a degree or two cooler.
Bethliving manufacturing produces its own energy captively from its captive solar plant. Though connected to the grid our solar plant produces an equal amount of energy and puts it out to the grid. Making it a zero Carbon manufacturing plant.
ZERO Wastage process
Scrap and other wastages accounting is the center of this program. Every kilogram of raw material is accounted for and put through a technology platform for the highest level of utilization. Once the process clears the utilization levels the actual wastage is tracked accounted and put through a credible recycling process through a vendor. Absolute ZERO wastage process to us is goal closer than ever
ZERO wastage packaging
Bethliving has moved away from any plastic in its packaging except tapes. All petroleum products in packaging like Termocole, polystyrene foam are eliminated. The packing honeycomb boards used are made of 100% recycled paper which is biodegradable or recyclable.
Two years back, we set out for ZERO as our sustainable manufacturing goal. Today it looks closer than ever before. For once ZERO looks like a great goal to set for.
