Bry-Air's senior management has been actively engaging with our larger customer base through various trade media publication by providing insights, trends and new day solution offerings to industries like plastics, electric vehicles (EV) and energy storage systems (ESS), food, pharmaceutical etc.
“With rapid technological advancements taking place in manufacturing - Industry 4.0, growing usage of Artificial Intelligence (AI) etc., itʼs manufacturing which is seen to provide sustainable growth and rise in the career path of young Indians,” opines Deepak Pahwa, in dialogue with POLYMERS Communiqué"
Q. What new opportunities for environment control are your witnessing today. Tell us more about the opportunities presented by the manufacturing of electric vehicle batteries.
The demand for reliable and trustworthy environment control solutions is ever increasing. With the fast-paced growth across industries, countries, economies...and ignorance towards key natural resources and the environment at large, going forward we see immense opportunities for environment control solutions. Fresh air or noncontaminated air will become a dire need with rapid civilisation and technology growth. Take, for example, the boom in the energy storage and EV (electric vehicle) markets. The driver is ʻgreener technologyʼ, alternative solutions to declining resources but come with the same challenges to address / minimise the environmental hazards, risk to humans and finding a sustainable model to sustain the need of modern mankind. The Indian market has huge potential for EVs and is fast growing its capacities to be a self-sustainable EV manufacturer with all technologies / materials / machinery / dry rooms being available for enhancing and driving the needs of next-gen Indians. Analysing the trends in the space of EV, it looks like for the next few years, the raw material driving the market and in immense demand across the globe is lithium and related battery materials.
There are four critical legs on which the lithium battery production space stands on: l N Technology Raw material / other inputs like battery separators Machinery, and Dry Rooms Lithium battery manufacturing is a very critical process and requires ultra-low dew point conditions for production. It requires dry rooms with environmental control equipment which can help achieve < 1% RH conditions. As a key industry stakeholder working in the transformative mobility and energy storage space, in the field of providing dry room technology,
which is critical for lithium battery manufacturing, Bry-Air is well-equipped as a ʻMade in Indiaʼ dry room technology supplier offering patented solutions to cater to the growing EV battery manufacturing market.
Q. How would you rate the technology adoption by this industry (plastic auxiliaries)?.
The industry is fast-evolving and so is the Indian consumers appetite. New age plastics is driving the growth with recyclability of materials playing a critical role. Technology adoption in such a scenario has a pivotal role to play. The Indian consumer is now discerning, more conscious and aware of the nuisances of plastics. Yet, he / she is privy to the importance of plastics in daily life needs.
The consumer / manufacturer is more concerned about the grade of plastic being manufactured / used, stringent quality checks it has undergone, certification by leading domestic and international bodies of repute and none-but-the-least conformability and recyclability. Hence, role of technology in traceability, real-time analysis, measurement and control of moisture during processing, recyclability and predictive maintenance are all the more important for plastics auxiliary manufacturers

POLYMERS Communiqué l June - July 2019
Deepak Pahwa, Managing Director, Bry-Air and Group Chairman, Pahwa Group says that “There is heightened interest in the EV industry and Energy Storage Space, not just in India but globally too. As we all set out for a better future, the discussion on manufacturing of lithium-ion batteries for EV and efficient energy storage has taken the centerstage. The Indian Government`s slew of incentives Including inviting global players to set up mega manufacturing plants for making India a global hub of manufacturing EVs is a welcome step. As industry pioneers and the only Indian company for supplying ultra-low dew point dehumidifiers across the globe, we have been driving the Make in India narrative.
