A leading scaffolding solutions company has begun trials of a ground-breaking fuel conditioner as it seeks to reduce its impact on the environment.

Allsafe Scaffolding Ltd, based in Banbury, Oxfordshire, has partnered with fuel technology expert SulNOx Group Plc to run and evaluate its innovative fuel additive with a view to reducing harmful emissions and improving fuel efficiency in its current fleet.

As part of a five-year ‘green mission’, Allsafe is taking steps to imbed sustainability in its business to decrease its social and environmental impact. The company believes working with SulNOx Group will have an immediate impact.

Andrew Simmonds, Managing Director at Allsafe, said: “As a large scaffold contractor, we run a sizable fleet comprising 44 vans and Heavy Goods Vehicles (HGVs), so we are always looking for new ways to minimise our environmental impact. Reducing carbon emissions is one of the ways we can achieve this.

“With so much scrutiny on the construction industry and so many of our esteemed customers working towards a greener way to build, we are actively trying to play our part and ultimately have a positive impact locally.

“On top of that, with fuel prices remaining high, we are actively looking at improving the efficiency of our ever-growing fleet. The SulNOxEco Fuel Conditioner ticks both boxes for us and we are excited to see the results of the evaluation and explore how it could benefit us in the long-term.”

SulNOxEco is a unique, advanced fuel additive made from natural, biodegradable ingredients that has been shown to improve fuel efficiency and reduce the production of harmful emissions including CO2 and fine particulate matter.

Over an evaluation period of up to three months, Allsafe will use SulNOxEco Fuel Conditioner in three vehicles, looking to mirror significant fuel and maintenance savings seen elsewhere.

Ben Richardson, Chief Executive of SulNOx Group, said: “We are delighted to be partnering with Allsafe as they look to reduce their environmental impact and improve the efficiency of their vehicles.

“Our technology is verified with real world data from numerous tests and trials, so we know the impact we can have across many industries. Particularly in construction and commercial transportation, moving to a wholly electric fleet or using alternatives from traditional fuels is currently not a viable option.  We offer a credible and scalable solution for the here and now, vital for climate goals, that can make a significant difference to air quality and emissions, and potentially give commercial users a green edge over competitors.”
