News release: Travel de Courcey Takes Another Environmental Step With Fuel-Saving Additive Envirox™

Following the successful launch of the Coventry park-and-ride service featuring three new battery-electric buses with the UK’s first rapid recharge system, Travel de Courcey has taken a further environmental step by setting up a full commercial trial of Energenics’ fuel saving additive Envirox™. This new initiative will see the whole of its Coventry based diesel fleet of approximately 106 buses and coaches using the nanotechnology based additive for an initial 6 month period. An additive dosing unit has been installed at the main depot in Coventry to treat the bulk diesel fuel storage tank with Envirox™ which was developed in laboratories on Oxford University’s Begbroke Science Park.

Through the use of Envirox™, Travel de Courcey is targeting an average fuel saving of 4% which on an annualised basis is equivalent to 170 tonnes of CO2. Adrian de Courcey, commented, “The new electric buses and fast recharge system show our desire to be an innovator in green technology in this industry, and Envirox™ through its savings in fuel and reduction of harmful soot emissions allows us to address the traditional diesel powered fleet in a similar vein. The cost savings from improved fuel consumption should help us to continue to offer great value for money fares to our customers.” Read More>>
