EcoPar is an ultra-clean fuel for conventional diesel engines. Compared with diesel, MK1, the emission of many carcinogens is down by over 90%. Levels of nitrogen dioxide are reduced by over 50%. The amount of visible soot decreases and the overall toxicity of exhaust fumes are cut sharply. Net carbon dioxide emissions go down by more than 30 – 50% throughout the entire life cycle according to ISO 14041 and ISO 14049.
We use EcoPar fuel because we firmly believe that lift users should have a better working environment. The fact that it is also better for the environment makes it even a more desirable choice.
Users who previously suffered health problems from diesel exhaust fumes report that these problems are greatly reduced or disappear completely with EcoPar fuel. Common symptoms arising from diesel exhaust include headache, nausea and irritation of the eyes, nose, throat and skin.
EcoPar is suitable for all situations where exposure to emissions cannot be avoided, such as construction and demolition, park and street work, the construction of roads, bridges and tunnels, etc. EcoPar is not classified as dangerous according to the international ADR/RID, because of the low risks to the environment and health. Since EcoPar is not toxic to any aquatic organisms, it is particularly appropriate when working near water protection areas, nature reserves, conservational habitats, and other sensitive natural environments.
EcoPar meets the U.S. standard for diesel fuel ASTM D975, and can therefore be used in all types of engines, burners and vehicles where diesel oil is used today, such as buses and trucks, heaters, marine, forestry and mining machinery, compactors, tractors and lawnmowers. Engine power is unchanged with EcoPar compared to environmental class 1 diesel oil. Fuel consumption is usually unchanged or slightly less when using EcoPar. The fuel has undergone thorough testing in all kinds of climates. Cold starting has been tested down to -30º C without any problems.
