Shell was delighted to introduce Shell Eco-marathon to the UK audience at this year’s LowCVP Annual Conference. The contest, started in France, in 1985, has grown to three events a year in Asia, Europe and the Americas. The competition challenges some 5,000 students from fifty countries to design, build and test ultra -efficient vehicles. Cars can be powered by one type of fuel: conventional petrol and diesel; biofuels; gas-to-liquid; hydrogen; or electricity and the winners are the teams that go the furthest using the least amount of energy.
The mayor of London, Boris Johnson, has unveiled an 'Air Quality Manifesto' aimed at tackling London's air pollution. He confirmed plans to create the world's first Ultra Low-Emission Zone (ULEZ); encouraging all vehicles in central London to be ultra-low or zero emissions from 2020.
TfL has announced that more than 1,000 older buses on more than 50 of London's routes have now been fitted with equipment that removes around 90% of NOx emissions, concluding the world's biggest emissions busting retrofit scheme.
