Carbon Trust to help car dealers cut CO2



Carbon Trust to help car dealers cut CO2
The Carbon Trust is joining forces with two motor industry associations to help car dealers cut their carbon footprint.

Some 30 dealerships from all major motor manufacturers will be visited by the trust. The dealerships will all be of various sizes, types and occupy different styles of buildings to allow for a proper representation of the industry.

It is thought that car dealerships will be able to save 50,000 tonnes of carbon dioxide each year and cut their annual energy bills by £6 million.

Findings from the project, which is being carried out in partnership with The Society of Motor Manufacturers and Traders and Retail Motor Industry Federation (RMI), will then be published in a report in January 2011 for the whole industry.

Steve Latham, operations manager for the RMI, said: "Today we sell and promote many new cars with very efficient engines, producing lower CO2 emissions, therefore it is imperative we do everything possible to reduce energy consumption in our dealerships and reduce our costs in these difficult trading conditions."

Research conducted by the Carbon Trust recently showed consumers are being drawn to green products, with 90 percent of households buying a carbon labelled product in the past year. ADNFCR-1235-ID-800160095-ADNFCR

Hi, Our company manufactures catalysers that produce hydrogen and oxygen on demand. The introduction of these gases in monatomic form, to a vehicle's air supply has allowed us to achieve hydrocarbon emission reductions of between 50 and 95% (these figures from independant tests). It has also allowed us to remove catalytic converters from some vehicles giving a considerable horsepower increase with no change in emission levels. Moderate fuel saving has also been achieved. A great advantage of our system is that it can be fitted to most internal combustion engines -- you don't have to buy a new vehicle to achieve carbon and other noxious gas savings. We have vehicles that have failed Euro emissions testing altogether (HC 1094 ppm) that now pass the Euro 4 standard (HC 09 ppm) with nothing done to the motor other than the installation of a catalyser; all this while only drawing under 2 amps -- www.cleanfuelz.com
