In your experience, how does using recycled materials impact the overall cost-effectiveness of road construction projects?

Our dedication to circularity in road construction emphasises the cost-effective use of recycled materials. Our specialised equipment seamlessly integrates recycled materials, streamlining workflows and saving time and resources. This approach enhances project cost-effectiveness and results in the construction of durable roads, requiring less maintenance, leading to long-term savings. Despite initial investments, the subsequent cost efficiencies and environmental benefits make recycled materials an optimal choice for sustainable infrastructure development. SANY India is committed to spearheading the adoption of more sustainable and economically viable road construction methods.

What role do regulatory bodies play in promoting circular economy practices within the industry?

We regard regulatory bodies as indispensable partners in promoting circularity in the construction sector. Their pivotal role in establishing ambitious targets for resource recovery and recycled content guides our industry towards sustainable practices. Adhering to eco-design principles, mandated for durability, repairability, and recyclability, is a key focus influencing our new and existing product lines. The support of regulatory bodies in fostering research, sharing best practices, and building partnerships is invaluable for driving innovation and progress.

Have digital tools or AI been incorporated into your processes to optimise circular economy practices?

We lead sustainable construction through digital innovation. Our Smart Fleet Management system optimises equipment use, reducing fuel consumption and extending lifespan with predictive maintenance. AI-powered recycling enhances material separation for high-quality reuse. Circular design and procurement, using 3D modelling, facilitate reusing building material, connecting us with recycled material suppliers. Our autonomous construction equipment, such as excavators and loaders, improves efficiency, minimises human error, and reduces waste. These strategies embody SANY India’s commitment to pioneering eco-friendly construction practices.
