ECO-FRIENDLINESS IS A WAY OF LIFE AT SUPERFAN

From Superfan, India’s first super energy efficient ceiling fan

Many BLDC ceiling fans are marketed as eco-friendly, as they save about 1 kg of CO2 emissions and 2 liters of water every day by conserving electricity. While claiming eco-friendliness in advertisements, they seem to continue to use plastics in packaging, not utilizing ROHS electronic components, not avoiding processes that impact the environment. Their claim of eco-friendliness tends to be empty especially when those manufacturers began making BLDC ceiling fans because of the government mandates. Is postponing bee star rating a piece of good news for customers?

Superfan invented the BLDC ceiling fan technology in 2012 with the intent to save the environment for future generations. Since then, we have strived to continuously improve our processes to minimize the environmental impact of our products throughout its life. At Superfan, eco-friendliness is more than the feature of the product; it’s a way of life. Superfan makes a concerted effort to reduce carbon footprints throughout its operations. 

Here are few examples of how Superfan is making a difference: 
Eco-friendly packaging 

The packaging of Superfan ceiling fans is without plastics such as bubble wrap, covers, bags, thermocol, and cellophane. Other ceiling fan brands use 350 grams of plastics. Superfan uses cloth, cardboard boxes, and packaging paper. 

Eco-friendly infrastructure 

Superfan factory buildings are built with reusable bricks needed less sand, cement, and water during construction. The architectural design features numerous passive space cooling and lighting design elements that eliminated the need for air conditioners and reduced the need for ceiling fans and artificial lighting. The Superfan factory has the least possible impact on the local flora and fauna; the surrounding vegetation is left to grow naturally and supplemented with indigenous species. Because of this minimal impact, about 50 species of birds and small animals still use this space as their habitat.   

Reusable packaging 

Superfan product packaging is famous among the sellers and loyal consumers for its lack of plastics and completely recyclable design. This focus on packaging extends to the manufacturing process as well. The component packaging from the suppliers is reusable or recyclable, which saves energy and waste during the manufacturing process. 

Energy-efficient manufacturing 

Superfan has a few innovations in BLDC ceiling fan manufacturing that has increased the efficiency in manufacturing. Even these innovations stemmed from the core principle of eco-friendliness. One of the messier processes of producing BLDC ceiling fans was assembling and securing the magnets in the motor. Earlier, it required adhesives that emits harmful fumes and a longer curing time. Superfan devised a novel method of securing the magnets mechanically by eliminating hazardous chemicals and curing time. The efficient product design employs semi-manual processes to minimize the energy consumption in manufacturing. 

Sustainable sourcing 

The raw materials of Superfan BLDC ceiling fans are procured mostly from suppliers around Coimbatore and in India. The intent of the practice is to grow the local business ecosystem and to minimize environmental impact from the transport.   

Extending the use of raw materials  

Superfan was the first in the Indian ceiling fan industry to offer a 5-year warranty due to the confidence in its product design, reliability, and repairability. 

The design of Superfan ceiling fans is reliable and easily repairable by consumers, which extends the life span of the product.. This product life extension maximizes the energy spent on raw material processing, product manufacturing, and all other related processes. In the long run, this avoids significant environmental impact.

End of lifecycle plan 

All failed electronic boards of Superfan are collected and disposed of within the regulations to avoid contamination for the environment. Superfan ceiling fans are designed to last for 20 years, and the majority of their parts are recyclable, with provisions in place to properly dispose them with minimal environmental impact. This method of disposal is rarely used since 2012 because the majority of Superfan ceiling fans are still in good working order and expected to  last another ten years.

These are few instances of eco-friendliness being a way of life at Superfan.
