Public Transport

Because of its safety, reliability and efficiency, diesel is the predominant power source for public transit, school and intercity bus services.

People and goods are on the move faster and farther than ever. Road transport is an important source of both greenhouse gases and air pollutants, being responsible for significant contributions to emissions of Carbon Dioxide, Nitrogen Oxides, Particulate Matter - PM10 and PM2.5.

While many cites have pledged to phase out diesel powered public transport in 2019 85.0% of all new medium and heavy buses (over 3.5 tonnes) registered in the European Union were fuelled by diesel,. All alternatively-powered vehicles (APV) combined accounted for 15.0% of the EU bus market, with electrically-chargeable vehicles (ECV) making up 4.0% of total new bus registrations. All of this goes to suggest that the related emissions will be with us for years to come. ElimiNOX Eco™ has the capability to make significant reductions to these emissions with proven results from even the latest Euro VI engines and with HVO. Although HVO reduces NOx emissions there are still emissions of particulate matter where ElimiNOX Eco™ is again proven to deliver improvement.

The extent to which the population and environment are exposed to harmful levels of air pollution is dependent upon various factors. However, as road transport emissions tend to occur in areas frequented by people, they are, relatively, more harmful than those from other sources. 

Transport emissions — which primarily involve road, rail, air and marine transportation — accounted for over 24% of global CO2 emissions in 2016. They're also expected to grow at a faster rate than that from any other sector, posing a major challenge to efforts to reduce emissions in line with the Paris Agreement and other global goals.
