Allsafe to road-test diesel fuel conditioner
By Larry Stewart15 August 2022
Allsafe Scaffolding Ltd, of Banbury, Oxfordshire, partnered with fuel technology expert SulNOx Group Plc to evaluate its SulNOxEco diesel fuel additive with a view to reducing harmful emissions and improving fuel efficiency in its fleet.
The scaffolding solutions company in southern England is engaged in a five-year “green mission,” taking steps to imbed sustainability in its business to decrease its social and environmental impact.
Allsafe’s green ambition
“As a large scaffold contractor, we run a sizable fleet comprising 44 vans and heavy goods vehicles, so we are always looking for new ways to minimize our environmental impact,” said Andrew Simmonds, managing director at Allsafe. “Reducing carbon emissions is one of the ways we can achieve this.
“With so much scrutiny on the construction industry and so many of our esteemed customers working towards a greener way to build, we are actively trying to play our part and ultimately have a positive impact locally.
“On top of that, with fuel prices remaining high, we are actively looking at improving the efficiency of our ever-growing fleet. The SulNOxEco Fuel Conditioner ticks both boxes for us and we are excited to see the results of the evaluation and explore how it could benefit us in the long-term.”
SulNOxEco Diesel Conditioner is made from natural, biodegradable ingredients that SulNOx Group says has been shown to improve fuel efficiency and reduce the production of harmful emissions including CO2 and fine particulate matter.
SulNOx says the diesel conditioner’s benefits include:
- Scavenging free water from fuel systems to help fuel will remain stable for months in the tank
- Reducing corrosion and clearing residue to improve fuel-burn efficiency, thus reducing emissions and significantly reducing fuel costs
- Improving lubricity by 30% or more (certified by Bureau Veritas UK) which helps maintain the condition of fuel pumps and injectors
- Improving engine oil and bearing life by reducing soot and acid combustion byproducts that blow by the piston rings.
Over an evaluation period of up to three months, Allsafe will use SulNOxEco Fuel Conditioner in three vehicles, looking to mirror significant fuel and maintenance savings seen elsewhere.
“Our technology is verified with real world data from numerous tests and trials, so we know the impact we can have across many industries,” said Ben Richardson, chief executive of SulNOx Group. “We offer a credible and scalable solution for the here and now, vital for climate goals, that can make a significant difference to air quality and emissions, and potentially give commercial users a green edge over competitors.”
Allsafe Scaffolding Ltd is the latest large name to trial the technology, following partnerships with construction industry giants Tarmac and Besblock, and stairlift manufacturer Stannah.
