Deadline fast approaching for share of £5m Clean Vehicle Fund24 July 2014
Time is running out for a share of £5m from the Clean Vehicle Technology Fund, with the application deadline of Friday 25 July fast approaching.
One technology available to winning bids is Johnson Matthey's new SCRT emissions-busting system.
The company has worked with emissions control specialist Eminox to improve its retrofit SCRT system, which now delivers improved performance in a more compact unit for older buses and trucks.
The system has been tested at Millbrook on a Euro 3 bus and results showed NOx levels equivalent to those of a new Euro 6 bus.
A 97% reduction of nitrogen dioxide (NO2) was also recorded.
The latest retrofit SCRT system is being offered by Eminox to local authorities, other public bodies and private operators in the UK that are currently bidding for awards from the Clean Vehicle Technology Fund.
Last year's Clean Bus Technology Fund helped to pay for the modification of over 500 buses and £7.3m was awarded across 26 local authorities.
The Johnson Matthey/Eminox retrofit SCRT system is being fitted to bus fleets in the North East and in Brighton & Hove.
