Environmental responsibility

Environmental responsibility

El-Watch works every day to promote our customer’s environmental responsibility. Our IoT sensors ensure that they operate greener, smarter, and safer – and thereby reduce their climate impact. The main purpose of our products is to optimize operations, save unnecessary use of resources and contribute to a safer society.

Environmental and social impacts of using our IoT technology:

Reduction of greenhouse gas emissions 

  • Reduced need for maintenance-related travel 
  • Increased lifespan of existing machines, – fewer machines produced 
  • Increased awareness of the value of equipment and energy consumption in the machine park 

Energy efficiency of the industrial sector 

  • Higher productivity in the machine park – more production output per energy unit 
  • Avoid unplanned downtime – fewer energy-intensive start-up sequences 
  • Better condition of machines and infrastructure saves the company from energy leaks in the form of electricity, compressed air, or gas leaks 

Better use of non-renewable materials and minerals 

  • Reduction in unplanned downtime reduces the scrap rate 
  • Extended lifespan of the machine park postpones investments in new machines 
  • Replacement of spare parts at the optimal time – avoids throwing away spare parts that have residual value, as well as running to breakdown with consequential damage to other equipment 

A safer society 

  • Sensor-based PdM reduces the need to send people into hazardous areas to take measurements. 30% of deaths in production companies are related to maintenance operations. 
  • Sensor-based PdM increases the likelihood that overheating is detected early enough to prevent a fire.
