Governments around the world are embarking on ambitious plans to tackle NOx And Other Harmful emissions in Urban Areas
FPS’ DiesoLiFT™ Provides Governments With An Immediate Cost-Effective Solution Allowing Them To Achieve Their Clean Air Quality Objectives
St. Louis, (UPTICK Newswire – June 1st, 2016) – Fuel Performance Solutions, Inc. (“FPS” or the “Company”) (OTC BB: IFUE)announced today that DiesoLiFT™ is a proven, cost-effective fuel additive formulation providing governments with access to an immediate solution to help them achieve their clean air quality objectives.
In the U.K. for example, the Department for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs has set out a plan for implementing Urban Clean Air Zones. Under this plan, by 2020 the most polluting diesel vehicles – old polluting buses, coaches, taxis and lorries – will be discouraged from entering the centers of Birmingham, Leeds, Southampton, Nottingham and Derby. Newer vehicles that meet the latest emission standards, and private cars, will be unaffected.
“In addition to providing emissions reductions and fuel efficiency benefits to newer vehicles, use of DiesoLiFT™ will allow many of the older vehicles to meet the stringent new emissions standards,” said Axel Farhi, FPS’s Director of Global Business Development.
The city of London has already devised its own strategy for improving air quality by 2025, including the implementation of an ultra-low emission zone by 2020, retro-fitting of buses and licensing new taxis to be zero emission capable from 2018. The U.K. Department for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs will continue to support and monitor the delivery of the city of London’s plans.
The U.K. plan is just another example of how governments around the word are addressing the issue of air quality improvement, by implementing drastic programs of emissions reduction. Better air quality will have particular benefits for people with heart or lung conditions or breathing problems. The document issued in December 2015 by the U.K. Department for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs details the actions to be taken in the U.K., especially to curb down NOx emissions.
The causes of air pollution are well known: combustion of fossil fuels in power generation, industrial processes, and domestic heating and road vehicles. These can give rise to a number of pollutants including nitrogen oxides, sulphur dioxide and particulate matter. Chemical reactions in the atmosphere can also lead to the generation of other pollutants. Ozone is produced by the effect of sunlight on nitrogen oxides and volatile organic compounds (also produced by industry), while NOx and sulphur oxides can also contribute to the formation of particulate matter. On average transport is responsible for 80% of NOx emissions at the roadside in areas where we need to act to reduce levels.
Besides the arsenal of measures put forward by Governments to curb down emissions to acceptable levels, the use of FPS’s DiesoLiFT™ is a solution available today. Alongside improving combustion and, thus, reducing fuel consumption and improving fuel economy, DiesoLiFT™ provides a proven record of reducing NOx, particulates, smoke and other noxious emissions in diesel engines.
Thus, DiesoLiFT™ offers governments an immediate opportunity to attain their clean air initiatives by 2020-2025. The product is a proven solution for improved air quality and for reducing incidence of respiratory tract infections.
“Governments around the world are continually seeking new ways to further improve the quality of the air breathed by their employees and constituents. Air pollution is now a major voting issue amongst the public who want better air quality and health. It is now, more than ever, important for governments with the help of corporations to find cost effective ways of significantly reducing harmful emissions and improving quality of life for the public,” said Jonathan Burst, FPS’s CEO.
“FPS’s DiesoLiFT™ fuel additive formulation is a proven, cost effective solution available now and already successfully deployed with end-users. If adopted by corporations and governments, DiesoLiFT™ would provide an immediate and dramatic reduction in the harmful emissions associated with the consumption of diesel fuel,” concluded Mr. Burst.
