Land of Tomorrow
26 & 27 October 2023
New way of presenting earth, roads, hydraulic engineering & transport zero emission construction machines & trucks sharing knowledge creating impact as a group joining forces, starting collaborations and crossover with other industries
The transition to a more sustainable construction industry is promising and essential for the future of zero-emission construction sites With growing awareness of the impact of construction on the environment, companies and governments are striving to reduce emissions from construction sites and ultimately create completely zero-emission work environments. Some important aspects of the future of zero emission construction sites:
Electrification of construction equipment:
Traditional construction equipment, such as excavators, cranes and trucks, run on diesel fuel and emit significant amounts of exhaust fumes. The future focus is on the electrification of this equipment, with emission-free and electrically powered alternatives being developed and introduced. Electric construction equipment, powered by batteries or other forms of electrical energy, drastically reduces emissions and contributes to cleaner construction sites.
Sustainable energy generation:
Zero-emission construction sites use renewable energy generation systems, such as solar panels and wind turbines, to provide the required energy. These systems not only power the electrical construction equipment, but can also be used for general lighting, temporary offices and other electrical needs on the construction site. Using renewable energy sources reduces dependence on fossil fuels and reduces the carbon footprint.
An important aspect of zero emission construction sites is the reduction of emissions caused by transport and logistics. Efficient route planning, the use of electric vehicles for goods delivery and the implementation of smart logistics solutions can contribute to the reduction of emissions on the construction site. This also includes promoting the use of locally sourced materials to minimize transportation distances.
In addition to electrifying construction equipment, it is important to embrace emission-free working methods. This includes reducing the use of diesel generators, minimizing waste and encouraging the reuse and recycling of building materials. In addition, innovative techniques such as modular construction and 3D printing can contribute to reducing the environmental impact of construction.
The future of zero emission construction sites requires collaboration between the construction industry, governments, manufacturers, and other stakeholders. That is why we created together with Jessica Bruintjes of RKB Kranen LAND OF TOMORROW. An indoor construction site of 2500m2 where various suppliers exhibit their zero emission products and where, in addition to lectures, demonstrations are also given.
