An Oxfordshire scaffolding business has begun trials using a ground-breaking fuel conditioner in a bid to reduce its fuel consumption.

Forward-thinking scaffolding and access firm Allsafe Scaffolding which runs a fleet of 44 vans and HGV’s has partnered with fuel technology expert SulNOx to run and evaluate an innovative fuel additive.

Over a period of up to three months, Allsafe will use SulNOxEco Fuel Conditioner in three of its vehicles to see if they get more miles out of a full tank of fuel.

As part of a five-year ‘green mission’, Allsafe is taking steps to imbed sustainability in its business to decrease its social and environmental impact. The company believes working with SulNOx Group will have an immediate impact.

Andrew Simmonds, Managing Director at Allsafe, said: “As a large scaffold contractor we run a sizeable fleet comprising 44 vans and Heavy Goods Vehicles (HGVs), so we are always looking for new ways to minimise our environmental impact. Reducing carbon emissions is one of the ways we can achieve this.

With so much scrutiny on the construction industry and so many of our esteemed customers working towards a greener way to build, we are actively trying to play our part and ultimately have a positive impact locally.

On top of that, with fuel prices remaining high, we are actively looking at improving the efficiency of our ever-growing fleet. The SulNOxEco Fuel Conditioner ticks both boxes for us and we are excited to see the results of the evaluation and explore how it could benefit us in the long-term.”

SulNOxEco is a unique, advanced fuel additive made from natural, biodegradable ingredients that have been shown to improve fuel efficiency and reduce the production of harmful emissions including CO2 and fine particulate matter.

Ben Richardson, Chief Executive of SulNOx Group, said: “We are delighted to be partnering with Allsafe as they look to reduce their environmental impact and improve the efficiency of their vehicles.

Our technology is verified with real-world data from numerous tests and trials, so we know the impact we can have across many industries. Particularly in construction and commercial transportation, moving to a wholly electric fleet or using alternatives from traditional fuels is currently not a viable option. We offer a credible and scalable solution for the here and now, vital for climate goals, that can make a significant difference to air quality and emissions, and potentially give commercial users a green edge over competitors.”
