The Global Corona Virus
As most of us isolate 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 to 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 used to 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 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 country wide lockdown in India in March 2020- the particle matter plunged by 71% in the space of 1 week! This illustration shows some shocking graphs of data.
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 carbon Clean 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 tail pipe 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 air we breathe.
By investing in our technology, you will directly be helping to reduce harmful emissions that occur through combustion engines. So as a driver its 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 showed us very clearly that we can change our climate is so many ways and not just dream of a better future…
