During the manufacturing of a car, approximately 6000kg of CO2 is emitted. Bolts are not the main contributor but if we can reduce as little as 30kg CO2, or 0,5% per car by eco efficient fastener production, it amounts to at least 2.4 million tonnes of CO2 annually. This is not insignificant.
At Bulten we produce more than 5 million bolts every day, in just one of our 6 manufacturing sites. Every kg of reduced emission counts. We work continuously to reducing our energy consumption and emissions.
We believe that there is potential to cut emissions by half if every aspect of fastener production is optimized.
