Fleet managers told to clean up with diesel particulate filters15 December 2016

Fleet managers are being urged to consider cleaning diesel particulate filters (DPFs) instead of scrapping them – and by doing so boost their environment credentials as well as saving money.

Cameron Bryce, managing director of DPF Clean Team, says: “Regulation is definitely getting tighter around emissions and these will be more controlled as time goes on. London is already talking about introducing an extra £10 fee for entering the congestion charge zone and in some European cities older cars are banned altogether.

“More importantly is the impact these cars have on our environment. In London alone, we know there are almost 500 schools situated in areas where air pollution exceeds legal air quality levels. That cannot continue.”

However, says Bryce, the problem won’t be solved by discarding DPFs. “Throwing out the old units gives us another problem as all that happens is they end up on the scrap heap. We can take the unit, clean it and have it back in the vehicle within 24 hours. That way we are not creating more problems in how to dispose of the units – instead we are cleaning up their act to reduce emissions and doing our bit towards cleaner air.”
