Bus operators and transport planners will be able to learn how their vehicles can be upgraded to meet the London Ultra Low Emission Zone (ULEZ) and Clean Air Zones requirements when visiting the Eminox stand at this year’s Coach & Bus UK.
Hosted at the NEC in Birmingham on 4-5 October, Lincolnshire-based emission reduction experts Eminox will be showcasing the latest generation of its SCRT technology.
With the impending introduction of ULEZ, as well as 28 English local authorities being ordered to produce plans for tackling air pollution by March 2018, Eminox says it is now more crucial than ever for transport firms to prepare.
“With Euro 6 set as the minimum standard, many operators will need to consider vehicle upgrades or replacements,” said the firm.
“The latest generation of SCRT technology, designed by Eminox, can reduce NOx and NO2 by 99 per cent, and Particulate Matter by 95 per cent, resulting in emissions equivalent to Euro 6.
“It is a cost-effective compliance solution that can upgrade around 15 vehicles for the cost of one new vehicle.
“The new package includes a Control and Diagnostics interface (CADi) integration module and telematics, providing real time, real world performance data, whenever and wherever it’s needed.”
SCRT technology has been successfully retrofitted to more than 4,000 vehicles, and Eminox is also one of five approved suppliers for the new retrofit programme to upgrade around 5,000 London buses to Euro 6 standards.
“The Scottish Parliament has also announced plans for four Low Emission Zones (LEZ) in Glasgow, Edinburgh, Aberdeen and Dundee,” the firm continued.
“The first zone, likely to be Glasgow, will be introduced by the end of 2018, with the rest to follow by 2020. The minimum standard for bus, coach and HGV will be Euro 6 or retrofit approved to the same standard as other UK zones.”
