ENVIRONMENT

The health of our environment is of the utmost importance to Limo Saelens Group. The company takes its responsibility for example when purchasing new vehicles and invests as much as possible – according to the current offer – in environmental vehicles.

Since the cars never stay longer than 3 to 4 years in circulation, our fleet consists of the most recent vehicles and we are very mindful of the purchase of the most environmental friendly efficiency when selecting new cars.

The most recent vehicles are over the Euro 6 Dom norm for which particulate matter is practically neutralized.


In the Euro Norms exhaustion of CO (carbon monoxide), HC (hydrocarbons), NOx (nitrogen oxides) and soot particles are restricted. The demands that are made become stricter on a systematic basis and every time this happens, the applicable Euro Norm receives a new number. The current number is Euro 6, the strictest emission norm by which the manufacturers of cars have ever been confronted with. With the transition from Euro 5 to Euro 6 the maximum allowed NOx-emission is lowered for e.g. diesel cars from 180 to 80 mg/km!

80% of our fleer has been equipped with AdBlue.

To comply with the Euro 6 norm, one needs to invoke a very special after treatment system for larger diesel engines, for which the additive AdBlue is used. AdBlue is a biological degradable fluid that is water based and composes of 32.5% urea (or carbomide). This fluid is injected in a controlled fashion into the exhaustion system after which ammonia is released in de additional DeNOx catalyst (Selective Catalytic Reduction). This causes a more qualitative exhaustion.
 

To comply with the Euro 6 standard, larger diesel engines must rely on a very special after-treatment system in which the AdBlue additive is used. 

AdBleu is a biodegradable water-based liquid that consists of 32.5 percent urea. The fluid is injected into the exhaust system in a controlled manner, releasing ammonia into the additional DeNOx catalyst SCR (Selective Catalytic Reduction). This ensures a more qualitative emission.
