The newly announced agreement between the two firms will lead to the launch of a range of fleet solutions under the TruckServices ProFleet Connect banner. These will initially be aimed at truck fleets but will later target lighter commercial vehicles too, and will enable operators to enhance service levels, make operational cost savings, minimise carbon emissions and reduce vehicle wear and tear.

Managing livestock diets to reduce greenhouse gas emissions - Case study
Scientists in South East Asia have been measuring greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions from goats and cattle in a series of research projects investigating the effects of different feeding regimes. In each case, the eructed, or belched, emissions from each animal were measured with a portable FTIR gas analyzer from Gasmet Technologies. The research papers have been published by ‘Livestock Research for Rural Development,’ a peer-reviewed international journal for research into sustainable developing world...
Shipping sector braces for emissions storm
Is the fuel oil market ready for tighter carbon and sulphur emissions rules on shipping? Tighter emissions regulations are set to cause a revolution in the shipping fuel market over the next few years, with plans now in place for carbon emissions cuts and tougher regulations on sulphur emissions increasingly likely to come into force in 2020. A compromise agreement reached by member states of the International Maritime Organisation (IMO) in London on 13 April has paved the way for carbon emissions cuts of at...
Managing carbon emissions: understanding the UK landscape
Ensuring the development of low-carbon generation and the regulation of greenhouse gas production is one of the many priorities for UK government. As such, several policies have been introduced to help manage greenhouse gas levels, including the Energy Savings Opportunity Scheme (ESOS) and the Smart Grid Forum. The Energy Savings Opportunity Scheme (ESOS) ESOS is a mandatory energy assessment and energy savings identification scheme for large companies and corporate groups. In order to comply with ESOS,...
Measuring Combustion Efficiency & Emissions from a Sugar Mill as a Cogeneration Process - Case study
Issue For many years, sugar mills have burned bagasse, the fibrous byproduct of the processing of sugarcane, using special boilers that produce the steam needed to help break down the sugar cane. As the cost of powering this equipment by burning fossil fuels has steadily risen, the use of biofuel cogeneration as a source of power production has become more prevalent. Many sugar mills have updated their bagasse-fired boilers and linked them to generators that produce electricity used to power the...
Surge in emission reductions recorded across global supply chains
Emission reductions equivalent to 551 million metric tonnes of carbon dioxide were recorded across global supply chains in 2017, up from the 434 million registered the previous year. This signifies greater reductions than the total amount of emissions produced by Brazil in 2016, with businesses reporting cost savings of approximately $14bn (£10bn) as a result. The research, carried out by CDP, shows these improvements were thanks to a doubling in the number of companies tackling emissions in their...
