Tool to help address carbon emissions
09 July 2022
SKF HAS launched a new, freely available, tool to help the industry to better understand and address their carbon emissions.
Available at www.skf.com/co2dashboard, users can access a dashboard where they can explore how CO2 emissions related to the production and use phase of bearings are distributed in different industries. The dashboard provides illustrative examples based on how emissions differ in various positions across industry applications.
Users then have the option to get a more detailed estimation with SKF’s Bearing Select software tool by adding a few data points. The user will receive the estimated CO2 emissions for single rolling bearing, illustrating estimated emissions related to the production phase and from frictional power losses and grease consumption when in operation. The user can download a report giving detail on these estimations, which can provide a starting point for improving the application from a sustainability performance perspective.
