ALTERNATIVE FUEL TYPES
DEF (Diesel Exhaust Fluid) / AdBlue® / ARLA: Cutting down on harmful emissions
DEF / AdBlue® / ARLA helps convert harmful nitrogen oxides (NOx) from diesel vehicle exhausts into water and nitrogen, considerably reducing greenhouse gas emissions. It is a harmless additive, which is stored in a dedicated tank on the vehicle and injected into the post-combustion exhaust stream. The solution is non-flammable and non-explosive and is classified as a transportable fluid with minimal risk.
Explore alternative fuels
Now more than ever before, there is a greater focus on finding more environmentally friendly ways to power vehicles, but it can be quite overwhelming to know which option is best suited for your needs. Below, we have outlined a range of alternative fuel types and additive solutions that are kinder to the environment. We have a series of products available to complement each one of them and we are confident that we can supply you with an ideal solution to help contribute towards a greener future.
LPG: Greener, more efficient fuel
Liquified Petroleum Gas (LPG) is a mixture of gaseous hydrocarbons produced from natural gas and oil extraction and from oil refining. It is automatically generated during the production of methane and during the refining process itself.
LPG originates mainly from natural gas production and has lower greenhouse gas emissions than other fossil fuels when measured on a total fuel cycle.
As a high proportion of its energy content is converted into heat, LPG can be up to five times more efficient than traditional fuels, resulting in less energy wastage and better use of our
Perfectly placed to accelerate the proactive use of alternative energy solutions, our LPG fuel dispensers differentiate forecourts, providing a more convenient and attractive way for consumers to fill up, as they make the move away from diesel and petrol vehicles and towards a more diverse way of powering their journeys.
CNG: Fuel the planet appreciates
Compressed Natural Gas (CNG), a fuel based primarily on methane, is the cleanest of all fossil fuels, as when burned, it releases carbon dioxide and water vapor into the atmosphere: the same compounds we exhale when we breathe. The quantities in which these compounds are released into the atmosphere are significantly reduced when compared with conventional petrol or diesel fuels, which goes a long way in helping to reduce the harmful effects of greenhouse gas emissions.
CNG fuel is also a much safer alternative to petrol or diesel; in the event of a spill, it disperses quickly when released, significantly reducing the risk of explosion or fire. CNG vehicles offer considerably lower running costs than their diesel or gasoline/petrol counterparts.
Biodiesel: Fueling Sustainability
Made from a diverse mix of resources such as recycled cooking oil, soybean oil and animal fats, Biodiesel is a renewable, clean-burning replacement fuel that meets strict quality standards and can be used in existing diesel engines without modification.
Biodiesel is biodegradable and works effortlessly with existing infrastructure and vehicles. Today, more than 78% of diesel vehicles* coming off production lines are approved for B20 use. Producing fewer toxic pollutants and greenhouse gases than petroleum diesel, Biodiesel also improves engine lubrication and increases engine life.
The addition of a biodiesel fuel dispenser to your forecourt will not only differentiate you from your competition, it will also provide an alternative form of fuel while reducing dependence on more traditional types of fuel.
Fuel additives are chemical mixtures, usually applied to fuel in small concentrations, used to impact or enhance the performance of the engine. They cover a broad spectrum of uses including improving the efficiency of the fuel, maintaining original engine cleanliness, lowering emission levels whilst protecting the engine parts. In simple terms, fuel additives change standard fuel into a premium grade.
The addition of a fuel additive dispenser to your forecourt will differentiate you from your competition and enable you to expand the range of fuel grades on offer. In turn, this will improve margin without the need for investment in underground infrastructure.
