Many organisations have adopted strategies targeted at achieving zero emissions. As we roll on into the 21st century, we see this becoming a larger and more significant issue every year. By partnering with leading industrial cleaning equipment manufacturers from around the globe, EcoTeq has set about developing and presenting a range of outdoor cleaning solutions which assist organisations in achieving their environmental goals.
Over the years, battery technology has increased to the point where it is now achievable to deliver a full-shift clean on a single charge. This advancement has made it a viable proposition for organisations to embed battery electric equipment into their industrial cleaning equipment fleet.
Outdoor cleaning equipment with battery technologies are now all being used by leading companies all over the globe. Some recent advances driving viability is the introduction of new battery materials which promote longer run times between charges and extend battery life. In turn, this allows the battery to be charged more times before replacement. Typically, a well-maintained battery will last for 1500 cycles, and this generally equates to 5 years of operation and limits requirement for replacement.
By working with European partners EcoTeq has developed a range of street sweepers and footpath sweepers that are 100% electric and totally emission free. These world-leading machines are able to achieve everything their diesel counterparts could, with the following enviable advantages:
– Totally Emission Free
– Low Noise Output
– Up to 90% Saving on Fuel Costs
– Up to 70% Saving on Maintenance Costs
– Increased Uptime with fewer moving parts
While there is a rise in the market of diesel street sweepers that have been ‘converted’ to electric, they do not come without some disadvantages including increased weight, lower run times and still rely on a full hydraulic operating system.
‘Green’ cleaning has been a growing trend in business for several years. Not that long ago, however, ‘going green’ was a matter of switching to more environmentally friendly cleaning products. Today, this has evolved to become more than just lip service; true deliverables are being required to be demonstrated.
The focus on environmentally friendly cleaning is part of increasing awareness about the state of our natural world. We are constantly being reminded about climate change and seeing the evidence of humankind’s impact on our world. Remember how environmental activist Greta Thunberg stirred up the world leaders at the United Nations recently, and the protests that erupted with the burning of the Amazon rainforest?
These are examples of large, high-profile environmental events. However, many of us are realising that being green begins with smaller changes right here at home. We want to see a difference and that can start with introducing battery Industrial Cleaning Equipment to support organisations realise true emission free status.
