Abels reduces emissions via hydrogen device

A fleet of Abels Moving Services vehicles reduced emissions by 91% over 18 months using a carbon capture device provided by Advanced Hydrogen Technologies’s (AHT).

During the trial, Abels’s heavy goods vehicles (HGV) averaged a particulate number count of 116,300 cm³ while identical trucks fitted with AHT’s carbon capture device peaked at 10,030 cm³.

AHT’s eco-friendly testing process uses hydrogen to remove carbon build up. The UK Government and similar organisations focus on gases as part of the Euro Emissions Standard initiative, but AHT’s system further reduces harmful fine particulates, less than 2.5 micron in diameter, which are associated with detrimental health effects. Particulate Matter (PM) 2.5 can remain airborne for long periods and be drawn deeper into the lungs and bloodstream than carbon dioxide, carbon monoxide or nitrogen oxides (NOX), for example.

Mark Costa-Rising, chief commercial officer at Abels Moving Services’s parent company, AGM Group: said: “We’re delighted with the results and utilising this technology on our vehicles going forward will give us real partnership leverage when it comes to proving ESG compliance and reduction of our carbon output. With the Corporate Sustainability Reporting Directive set to become even more stringent from January 2024, it will also give us tangible benefits in our social, environmental and financial reporting and put us at the forefront of sustainability performance.”

“Quite simply, this technology will demonstrably negate our impact on the environment and reduce our carbon footprint – positioning us a good, better and preferred company to do business with.”
