3 Ways To “Go Green” In 2021!

Reduce Carbon Emissions through our automotive environmental technology

Start the year right by ‘going green’ and helping to reduce the amount of carbon footprint. Wondering how? We highlight 3 clear ways to reduce carbon emissions using various machines in your workshop.

The automotive industry is to blame for up to 30% of the total CO2 emissions released into the atmosphere so therefore there is a big push for governments and businesses to drive the initiative to reduce carbon emissions. The great news is that we offer various machines which reduce the carbon emissions while providing clear benefits to the driver and harvesting extra revenue for the garage. This makes this initiative a win, win situation for all.

1. Invest in an Engine Carbon Cleaning Machine

At Carbon Clean we offer a range of HHO Engine Carbon Cleaning Machines designed to accommodate almost any type of vehicle from passenger cars, vans, trucks, commercial fleets, motorcycles and even boats. Our machines are specifically designed to offer an easy and less labour-intensive way of cleaning carbon built up in vehicles engines. By investing in one of our machines you can increase your workshop revenue with a new unique service whilst also contributing towards a healthier environment by reducing the carbon footprint in your area.

2. Dive into the world of DPF Cleaning

Investing in something new for your business can seem daunting but investing in DPF cleaning is definitely worthwhile for any workshop that wants to increase their workshop revenue and contribute towards a greener environment. Diving into the world of DPF Cleaning will allow your business to help reduce carbon footprint significantly. Many diesel vehicles are affected by the build-up of carbon, which causes the dpf filter to become blocked and any regeneration will fail to solve the issue. Many workshops don’t realise how effective our technology is to remove up to 100% of the carbon with our machines.

3. Use a HPCS Machine to remove Carbon Build-Up

Our range of high pressure cleaning system (HPCS) machines are designed to remove carbon build-up in the most effective way yet. Our machines allow you to deeply and effectively remove carbon build-up from every single component within a vehicle’s engine simply by using high-pressure air and water. Carbon is a natural bi-product of the combustion process but measures to clean the internal engine are imperative to reduce the carbon emissions. The equipment is designed to be easy to use and the cabinet style design reduces mess and water leakage. This is the perfect solution for those who have are responsible for ensuring vehicles last for as long as they can. Fleet operators and commercial vehicles can dramatically reduce their carbon emissions with this process.

DPF problems to increase significantly in the coming months

Why are so many DPF problems occuring?

The lack of maintenance and servicing has become increasingly worrying throughout the automotive industry. Many UK drivers have admitted that they have not bothered to keep up the servicing and maintenance on their vehicles throughout the pandemic. As like many of us, we’ve hung the car keys up and got the bikes and comfortable walking shoes out. However, leaving vehicles without the proper servicing and usage will inevitably lead to issues and one of the main ones for Diesel vehicles is DPF problems.

Failed Regeneration in Diesel Particulate Filters

Changing driving patterns such as reduced usage, shorter car journeys and a lack of vehicle servicing are all factors which could contribute towards DPF blockages and malfunctions. The DPF automatically burns off most of the carbon residue when the engine is hot and can perform a DPF regeneration process. However, due to most Diesel owners only popping to the supermarket and back, the engine doesn’t get to perform this vital function.

Effects of Vehicle standstill
When vehicles are out of action for a long period of time, water and contaminants can enter the oil supply and result in sludge. This will generate more carbon, soot, and particulate matter (PM) to build up on major vehicle components. This kind of build-up is also likely to then lead to DPF’s becoming blocked and cause problems in other parts of the engine.

Many people throughout the UK are facing financial difficulties, therefore replacing their Disel Particulate Filter with a new manufacturer DPF for thousands of pounds is likely to be out of the question. However, there’s one other alternative which works out to be cheaper and in fact easier. Many workshop owners do not realise how easy it is to clean a DPF using our technology. It is, therefore, the perfect time for your workshop to invest in one of our DPF Cleaning Machines.

Why Commercial DPF Cleaning really works

We are pleased to announce that LB Commercial Vehicle Services are our newest commercial vehicle customer, who have invested in our state-of-the-art DCS-20 DPF Cleaning Machine. This equipment has the power to perform a professional, deep clean on any type of DPF but is specifically designed for heavy commercial use. With many additional features like ergonomic assisted winch, triple filtration system, heated drying mechanism and differential pressure print outs to name a few. This is the perfect model for commercial dpf cleaning with quick turnaround times to avoid down time, which is a key aspect for commercial vehicle owners.

LB services who specialise in commercial vehicle maintenance, noticed a huge growth in DPF related issues amongst commercial vehicles around the local area of Lutterworth. Therefore, they decided to offer DPF cleaning to increase workshop revenue and save their customers the expense of fitting new DPF’s also keeping vehicle downtime to a minimum.

We are pleased to say that the company can now professionally restore all DPF’s from passenger vehicles, to commercial fleets saving their customers time and expense but also maintaining healthy profit margins.

Why is the demand rising for Commercial DPF Cleaning?

Across the U.K there are a huge number of diesel vehicles and in the commercial sector, diesels account for 97% of the engines. All diesel particulate filters will get blocked at some point and this can cause many problems throughout the vehicle from engine malfunctions to poor fuel economy. These are all major factors that can negatively affect commercial fleets that operate on thin profit margins, and that is why our DPF technology has become very popular in recent years. Many workshop do not realise how to clean a DPF, but it's relatively straight forward with our innovative equipment!

By removing blockages in the Diesel Particulate Filter can offer huge benefits for commercial vehicles:

  • Improved fuel economy
  • More cost-effective to unblock a DPF
  • Less engine vibration
  • Better engine performance
  • Increases longevity of the commercial engine
  • Lower harmful emissions

Mark from LB Commercial Vehicle Services says

“We noticed a huge opportunity for DPF Cleaning services in Lutterworth, so we decided to invest in Carbon Clean's DCS-20 Commercial machine. We were looking specifically for a suitable DPF cleaning machine so we can provide this much-needed service to our customers. I really appreciated the on-site training and tips from Ben at Carbon Clean who answered all my questions on the installation day”.

Regardless of the current economic climate, LB Commercial Vehicles Services have progressed their workshop to capitalise on this very lucrative business opportunity to clean DPFs for commercial vehicles and fleets.

carbon clean centre manor park certificate

Why did Auto MOT Ltd become a Carbon Clean Centre?

We are pleased to announce that the Auto MOT Centre in Manor Park, London have come on-board as an Approved Carbon Clean Centre.

Why did they Invest into Engine Carbon Cleaning?

The team at Auto MOT Centre were experiencing a lot of vehicles coming into the garage with issues with their emissions, resulting in many MOT failures. As we are all aware London is known for its busy congested streets and short commuting habits by locals. Therefore vehicles surrounding the local garage are bound to have excessive carbon built up in their engines. This of course presented a lucrative opportunity to offer carbon removal technology to their client base. A Mechanic mentions “I’ve noticed that even the new generation vehicles have a lot of carbon built up within their engines”. With these points in mind, the team decided to invest in Carbon Cleaning to overcome these issues, help them to improve their MOT pass rate and to increase workshop revenue with a quick and easy 30-minute service.

When they came across our CC-14 Carbon Clean Machine online they knew that this would be ideal for their specific needs and requirements. The team said how they were only “looking for a machine that could remove carbon from standard sized vehicles” as they don’t tend to have many commercial customers. Our entry-level CC-14 Carbon Clean Machine was therefore the perfect fit. After talking to our experts it was clear that they recognised the benefits to becoming the official Carbon Clean Centre in Manor Park.

Benefits of our CC-14 Carbon Cleaning Machine include:

Carbon Cleaning & Tuning, a perfect partnership

Why would a tuning company benefit from Carbon Cleaning?

The aftermarket world for car performance tuning is an incredibly competitive business – styling changes, trends come and go; it can be difficult to keep up! But at its core the quest for more power and improved performance never goes away. So how can a Carbon removal help in that quest for improved performance?

Carbon naturally builds up within the engine and also within the Diesel particulate filter. This reduces the efficiency of the engine. More so the older vehicle is, the more of an impact this can cause to the bhp. Therefore, simply doing a tune up to an engine which has already lost performance is not the ideal situation.

About 75% of fuel is wasted

Did you know that with each litre of fuel used in an engine, only around 25% is used to generate performance? The 75% approximately remaining  is said to be wasted – generating mostly heat, highly contaminant gases and carbon residues.

These carbon deposits build up over time creating obstructions within the internals of the engine. Difficult to detect – these obstructions will at a minimum result in increased fuel consumption and poor emissions – but worst of all for the enthusiastic driver, engine performance and driveability can be drastically reduced causing issues in various sections of the power train.

Independent back to back rolling road tests have shown just how much horsepower can be lost over time – in fact a McClaren 12C with 36k miles on the clock found an extra 43bhp after a 30 minute HHO clean.  This is where a Carbon Clean machine really fits a purpose for a tuning company.

One of the most popular aftermarket modifications, Stage 1 OBD remaps offer great value for money and give excellent improvements to both performance and economy. But it’s possibly one of the most cut-throat areas of the market; a lot of companies do it, some unbelievably cheap re-maps are being offered and some wild horsepower results are being made.

How can a tuning company stand out and add value to their remapping offer?

Engine Carbon Cleaning

The Carbon Clean machine will enable you to offer far more than your rivals can, with solid performance gains. Take a 2014 Golf GTi for example; 216bhp is quoted by VW as new, most tuners are quoting 300bhp from a stage 1 map. That’s a great gain but for the reasons described earlier the vast majority of ’14 plate Golf GTi’s out there are not producing the 216bhp quoted by VW anymore…but 30 mins on the CC machine and that cars performance will have been restored to close to as new, and this is before you add the 84bhp delivered by the map!

The result will be a quicker car than any of your rivals are able to produce for the same money, and one very impressed customer. And thanks to the almost zero running costs of the CC machine you can offer this package very competitively!

Off-Car DPF Cleaning

Our machines are easy to use and will unblock any DPF on the market. In 20 minutes, high pressure air and water will remove thick carbon sludge that has built up in the DPF whether it be a passenger car, high performance vehicle or even a HGV!

This process causes your whole engine to breath better and will also definitely help with performance tuning upgrades. The full DPF restoration process is effective and thorough.

Covid-19 Pollution change

What COVID-19 has shown us…

The Surprising Impact on Carbon Emissions with COVID-19

As most of us isolated in our homes during this COVID-19 pandemic, we are changing the dynamics of our world in many different ways. It’s been an interesting time to reflect and understand some of the surprising positive impacts on our cities.

The effects of our behaviour on our planet have never been so apparent!

In Shanghai the lockdown has shut down many factories for months, leading to clear blue skies in a city submerged in constant smog. Research data shows that in February 2020 the air pollution readings were at a 6 year low.

In the UK the lockdown has created a huge disruption to everyday life as expected but will ultimately save many lives. On the plus side, we have seen a huge leap in air quality with measurements of toxic small particulate matter down (Pm) by as much as 50% in some major cities.

New Delhi has been known as one of the most polluted cities in the world! In a 2006 data study, vehicle emissions were the main contributing factor of the smog and poor air quality. However, during the countrywide lockdown in India in March 2020- the particle matter plunged by 71% in the space of 1 week! This illustration shows some shocking initial data providing an unfathomable impact on carbon emissions during the pandemic.

As the Corona Virus forces citizens from all over the world to stay at home, as you can see the positive results on the environment have been shocking.

How rapidly we can change our levels of pollution level is very encouraging.

This is why we are so passionate about carbon removal technology. Our machines are designed to safely remove stubborn carbon, soot and ash which builds up consequently in all combustion engines and diesel particulate filters.

In turn, we can lower the harmful gasses out of the tailpipe such as CO carbon Monoxide, and HC hydrocarbons both of which are toxic, to say the least to our environment. As we have seen, vehicles and traffic issues are a major factor which deteriorates the quality of the air we breathe. Blocked Diesel Particulate Filters are a big contributing factor due to incomplete regeneration which you can learn about here.

By investing in our technology, you will directly be helping to reduce harmful emissions that occur through combustion engines. So as a driver it’s clear to see the benefits to your vehicle for fuel economy, performance and of course reducing toxic exhaust emissions.

Moreover, as an automotive workshop wherever you are in the world, after this sudden pause in business you are going to need to find new ways of generating profitable revenue.

Becoming a Carbon Clean Centre poses a very lucrative business opportunity to offer carbon cleaning and DPF Cleaning to a market segment that is being pushed to think more ecologically.

To conclude, although the COVID-19 situation will become a very dark chapter in history, this period has shown us very clearly that we can change our climate is so many ways and not just dream of a better future…
