India’s automotive sector, one of the pillars of its economy, has been undergoing a significant transformation, especially in the realm of sustainability. With the country being the fourth-largest auto market in the world, the environmental implications of auto care cannot be overlooked. As per a report by the International Energy Agency (IEA), India’s vehicle ownership is expected to grow by 775% over the next three decades. This surge underscores the pressing need for sustainable auto care solutions.
The AUTOCARE Expo 2023, an integral segment of the Clean India Technology Week 2023, is set to spotlight the green revolution in auto care. The emphasis is on eco-friendly cleaning agents, water conservation techniques, and waste reduction in auto maintenance.
One of the primary concerns in auto care is the excessive use of water. Traditional car washes can consume up to 150 litres of water per vehicle. However, with the advent of waterless car wash products, this consumption can be reduced drastically, offering an eco-friendly alternative. Moreover, the Indian government’s push for water conservation, especially in urban areas, has led to the rise of such water-saving auto care solutions.
Furthermore, the detrimental effects of chemical cleaning agents on the environment are well-documented. In response, the market has seen a surge in biodegradable detergents and cleaning agents. These products, while ensuring a thorough clean, significantly reduce the environmental footprint.
Waste management in auto care is another area of focus. With initiatives like the Swachh Bharat Abhiyan, there’s a nationwide push towards efficient waste disposal and recycling. The auto care industry is aligning with this vision by adopting practices that minimise waste generation and promote recycling.
Join us at the AUTOCARE Expo 2023 to explore the myriad of sustainable auto care solutions. Witness firsthand how India is driving the change towards eco-friendly auto care practices, ensuring a balance between impeccable vehicle maintenance and environmental responsibility.
