Virtual AAPEX Experience exhibitor Carbon Clean offered its thoughts on the impact of the global COVID-19 related economic shut-downs.
“As most of us isolated in our homes during this COVID-19 pandemic, we are changing the dynamics of our world in many different ways. It’s been an interesting time to reflect and understand some of the surprising positive impacts on our cities.
The effects of our behaviour on our planet have never been so apparent!
In Shanghai the lockdown has shut down many factories for months, leading to clear blue skies in a city submerged in constant smog. Research data shows that in February 2020 the air pollution readings were at a 6 year low.
In the UK the lockdown has created a huge disruption to everyday life as expected but will ultimately save many lives. On the plus side, we have seen a huge leap in air quality with measurements of toxic small particulate matter down (Pm) by as much as 50% in some major cities.
New Delhi has been known as one of the most polluted cities in the world! In a 2006 data study, vehicle emissions were the main contributing factor of the smog and poor air quality. However, during the countrywide lockdown in India in March 2020- the particle matter plunged by 71% in the space of 1 week! This illustration shows some shocking initial data providing an unfathomable impact on carbon emissions during the pandemic.
As the Corona Virus forces citizens from all over the world to stay at home, as you can see the positive results on the environment have been shocking.
How rapidly we can change our levels of pollution level is very encouraging.
This is why we are so passionate about carbon removal technology. Our machines are designed to safely remove stubborn carbon, soot and ash which builds up consequently in all combustion engines and diesel particulate filters.
In turn, we can lower the harmful gasses out of the tailpipe such as CO carbon Monoxide, and HC hydrocarbons both of which are toxic, to say the least to our environment. As we have seen, vehicles and traffic issues are a major factor which deteriorates the quality of the air we breathe. Blocked Diesel Particulate Filters are a big contributing factor due to incomplete regeneration which you can learn about here.
By investing in our technology, you will directly be helping to reduce harmful emissions that occur through combustion engines. So as a driver it’s clear to see the benefits to your vehicle for fuel economy, performance and of course reducing toxic exhaust emissions.
Moreover, as an automotive workshop wherever you are in the world, after this sudden pause in business you are going to need to find new ways of generating profitable revenue.
Becoming a Carbon Clean Centre poses a very lucrative business opportunity to offer carbon cleaning and DPF Cleaning to a market segment that is being pushed to think more ecologically.
To conclude, although the COVID-19 situation will become a very dark chapter in history, this period has shown us very clearly that we can change our climate is so many ways and not just dream of a better future…
