Automotive aftermarket part of the solution to improve air quality, says TerraClean

Date: Tuesday 20 June 2023

Decarbonising agent TerraClean says that the automotive industry should promote itself as part of the solution, not the problem, as the UK marked the seventh Clean Air Day on 15th June 2023.

Poor air quality is gaining recognition as a major cause of long-term health problems, compounded by the low take-up of alternative transport. However, the vehicles on the country’s roads can be treated to reduce their carbon emissions and help improve air quality.

With more stringent emissions controls set to be signed into European legislation, the UK government is expected to introduce similar controls, potentially increasing the burden on motorists and fleets to ensure their vehicles are running as cleanly as possible.

Phil Dowd, sales director at Randstad, distributor of TerraClean, said:

“The automotive aftermarket is perfectly placed with several, proven solutions available to extend the lifespan of older vehicles and ensure emissions are reduced as much as possible, therefore reducing the burden on motorists as legislation is tightened.
“Through regular, preventative maintenance, and retention of the current annual MOT inspection, vehicle emissions can be closely monitored, all through products and services available in the aftermarket.”

Clean Air Day is held annually to raise awareness of the health risk of air pollution, with The World Health Organisation (WHO) and the UK Government recognising that air pollution is the largest environmental health faced globally.

TerraClean, through a number of products, removes harmful carbon deposits from a vehicle, giving off less harmful emissions that contribute to poor air quality.
