Britain Has Revealed its New Report on Heavy Goods Vehicles

Britain Has Revealed its New Report on Heavy Goods Vehicles

The number one (nay, the only one) Center of Excellence dedicated to lowering the carbon and fuel rates in various forms of technology in Britain has revealed its new report on heavy goods vehicles. Hired to make these findings by this country’s government, Cenex’s new document will be a key template to helping transport companies find out the different ways in which they can reduce their carbon emissions on the environment. Collaborating with engineering firm Atkins, Cenex recorded the various findings of the HGV trial that would assess how much of an impact these vehicles were having on the surrounding environment. The trial, which took place over the course of no less than 4 years and at a cost of 23.4 million pounds involving 35 different transport enterprises, was an ambitious venture that will have provided extremely useful data to help the country develop the ways in which fleet enterprises can implement lower carbon emitting vehicles into their development strategies for the near future. Assessing the emissions of these vehicles over a total distance of 65 million kilometers, it was found that vehicles using biological fuels on their journey, such as biomethane, managed to reduce the amount of carbon dioxide emissions by a staggeringly impressive 85 per cent.

On the other hand, vehicles using the energy resources of natural gas saved significantly less carbon emissions and also proved even more dangerous to the environment and the ozone layer, because these would release even more harmful greenhouse gases into the atmosphere. With this in mind, the report by Cenex compiled from all of this research clearly demonstrates that the organization’s collected data will be of huge use to transport and fleet companies wanting to reduce their carbon emissions and harmful impact on the environment. As Steve Carroll of Cenex states, it is more important than ever for large technological initiatives such as this four-year trial so that discoveries can be made to help reduce the amount of harm transport services cause to the environment.
