Using Alternative Fuels to Improve Air Quality and Carbon Reduction

On the University of Salford SEE project they are using Green D+ fuel as part of its plans to improve local air quality and reduce the carbon footprint of the construction process.

Green D+ HVO is an enhanced Hydrotreated Vegetable Oil manufactured from 100% renewable and sustainable waste derived raw materials, accepted by the Road Transport Fuel Obligation and certified by the ISCC. The project produced an air quality management plan for the project and as part of this looked into alternative fuels for operating the on-site telehandler.

As well as delivering a 90% reduction in CO2e and helping the project to meets is site specific carbon target it also reduces NOx emissions by 30% and particulate matter in the exhaust gases by 85%.
