Bio-Renewable Fuel

Global warming is a potential threat to everyone. However, there are several things that we can do to help the environment, one of them is using bio-renewable fuels.

Contrary to popular belief, bio-renewable fuels do generate emissions and pollute the environment. However, these emissions are generally much lower than hydrocarbon based fuels.  Also, most importantly, the plants required to make the bio-fuels absorb as much, if not more, carbon during the growing process, than is generated when the fuel is burnt. As a result of this, bio-fuels are classed as environmentally friendly.

There are various forms of bio-renewable fuels. We can change your existing fuel usage over to wholly or partly bio-fuel, ensuring that you and your organisation are doing your bit for the environment. In addition, bio-fuels are a much cheaper alternative to using fossil fuel based diesel so it also makes a sensible economic decision.

Making your business carbon neutral

Making your business carbon neutral is a simple two step process:

  • Assess the amount of carbon the business generates annually including that from heating, electricity and vehicles.
  • Calculate what is needed to offset the amount of carbon you generate. As an example, a 2.0lt diesel car travelling 12,000 miles per annum will generate 2.8 tonnes of Co2. Planting four trees will absorb 2.8 tonnes per year. Once we have calculated the level of emissions created we would advise on the best options to enable your organisation to become carbon neutral.

Planting trees is usually the most effective way of neutralising carbon. It’s not just the conversion of carbon dioxide to oxygen by the leaves that makes the difference. A typical tree is approx 50% carbon. The tree trunk and branches use carbon as building blocks, so planting a tree stores carbon and takes it out of the atmosphere so that it plays no further part in global warming.
