Success for Element Energy-supported project at the 2017 National Air Quality AwardsDecember 5, 2017
The Local Authority Air Quality Initiative of the Year was won by Birmingham City Council at the National Air Quality awards on 23rd November. The winning ‘Birmingham NOx reduction Champions’ project converted 65 highly-polluting diesel black cabs to liquified petroleum gas (LPG) using £500,000 funding secured from DfT.
Important achievements of the project include establishing a supply chain for LPG in the local region, and the development of a new low emissions technology for taxis. This technology meets the Clean Air Zone requirement and has now been approved by Transport for London for use in the capital.
Element Energy has been heavily involved in the project from the beginning, from running workshops with taxi drivers, to project managing the emissions testing of the vehicles, and disseminating the project results to other Local Authorities.
We are proud to have been involved in this pioneering project, and are very pleased that the continued efforts of our partners at Birmingham City Council and Harborne garage have been recognised.
