As responsible operators, Willmotts are very aware of the importance of protecting air quality and the health of the population.  Major cities are currently looking at banning or restricting diesel vehicles and the industry is responding to calls to cut the permissible limits for nitrogen oxides.  Manufacturers are making their diesel engines ever more efficient and the majority of Willmotts’ own vehicles have the most up-to-date Euro 6 engines.

New emissions regulations for diesel vehicles came into effect in September 2018 to target harmful gases linked to respiratory disease.  One of the latest techniques used by vehicle manufacturers to clean up diesel emissions is selective catalytic reduction (SCR).  A fluid known as Adblue, a solution of urea in water, is fed into part of the vehicle’s exhaust and a chemical reaction breaks down and converts the harmful exhaust pollutants, including nitrogen oxides (of which nitrogen dioxide, NO2 is the most harmful) into harmless nitrogen and water.
