CIBUS21: A Partnership for the Planet and the Future!

Announcement By Lulie Anderson

We’re excited to announce that we’ll partner with Cibus21 for all our future transporting needs. Cibus21 offers a fast and immediate solution to the world’s HGV emissions.

A Transporting Issue – The Statistics 

According to the European Environment Agency, Greenhouse Gas Emissions (GHG) from heavy goods vehicles account for a quarter of all road transport emissions in the EU. Moreover, these emissions have increased yearly since 2014, only dropping in 2020 due to the pandemic.

Road transport emissions have increased by 25% since 1990, expecting to rise a further 10% by 2030.

In 2021 total EU road freight transport accounted for 1,921 billion tonne-kilometres. The number of UK-registered vehicles travelling to Europe numbered 284,000.

Let’s Go, Electric? 

We’re far from creating an HGV powered by electricity, and other solutions, such as overhead charging cables, seem problematic. In addition, with HGVs weighing up to 44 tonnes, no amount of electricity will keep that on the road for the long haul expected of a lorry. Drivers rack up as many as 100,000 km a year on the road, and with smaller margins, speed and mileage are necessary.

The Diesel Debate

Diesel itself isn’t too unclean these days. The decline in diesel car sales actually contributed to a rise of 0.8% in carbon dioxide emissions in 2017. Furthermore, The Department of Transport stated that diesel vehicles have significantly lower Co2 emissions per km travelled due to their higher efficiency.

There is a big but to this, though. The noxious gases emitted are far higher than petrol vehicles, and diesel engines are the most significant cause of roadside pollution in urban settings. 

So, What Is The Solution?

We must immediately make small but essential changes to lower our CO2 and NOx emissions, especially in the HGV transportation market, where large vehicles are crossing the continent daily.

To this end, we are partnering with CIBUS 21. CIBUS 21’s solution makes an immediate difference to emissions by retrofitting HGVs with technology that reduces NOx emissions by 70% and diesel consumption by 20%, lowering bills and improving engine performance and reducing CO2 emissions by 20%.

The international patent pending technology works with the Electronic Control Unit (ECU). By monitoring the amount of diesel burnt in everyday use, the ECU responds by adding a reagent to create maximum improvement in combustion performance.

It’s a simple, real-time solution fitted to HGVs, military vehicles, refuse and delivery vehicles, generators, and for use in the mining industry.

The CIBUS 21 vision is simple. They have the ‘technology to do something sensible with existing machines that will make a massive, positive contribution to every nation around the globe that strives to end the climate emergency with a proven, scalable solution available today.’
