Motor Carbon Foodprint
Motors are one of the most important source of power. According to statistics, 46.2% of energy is consumped by motors worldwide. From household appliances to industrial machinary, motors powers every equipment. What kind of material forms a motor? More than 90% is metal. Here shows TECO high efficiency (IE3) 150 hp motor data:
Steel:54% Iron: 32% Copper: 6 % Aluminum:2 %
TECO has conducted a carbon footprint analysis of three high-efficiency motor models by "from cradle to gate" approach. Which calulated carbon emissions including raw material, manufacture process, direct manpower and waste generated. We found that 90% of carbon emissions come from the production of raw materials, and only 10% is from motor manufacture stage. This shows that the recycling of raw materials (metal parts) is important to reduce emission.

The total sales of TECO's motor series of products qualifying the carbon footprint analysis accounted for16.2% of the overall revenue
TECO conducted full assessment of motor carbon foodprint in 2016, covers 2.87% of total product models. Its series model has a total 16.2% share of total models. Data is calculated by sales revenue in 2020.
