Scotland's leading independent bus and coach operator, Rapsons, has taken delivery of six Eminox Continuously Regenerating Trap (CRTTM) systems, which eliminate over 90% of all particulate matter, hydrocarbons and carbon monoxide in diesel exhaust emissions. These systems have been fitted to vehicles operating in Inverness; they are the first known CRT systems in the area.
Rapsons, which operate across Scotland and Orkney, has approximately 240 buses and coaches in its fleet. Rapsons' Managing Director, John Lornie said: "We were conscious that some of our vehicles go into Inverness and obviously have an effect on the air quality in the city. CRT has been installed in order to reduce pollution in the area. We are an environmentally conscious company and want to do all we can for the environment."
The CRT systems have been fitted to a range of vehicles including Rapsons' Volvo B10, Dennis Dart and Volvo B6.
"Eminox initially approached us, and we found them to be the best in the market," said Mr Lornie. "We have been absolutely delighted with the product and Eminox. Since the CRT systems have been fitted we have carried out a number of tests on the vehicle's emissions, and CRT has proven itself."
