Carbon neutral fuel set to make The British Motor Show 2022 the greenest ever.
The British Motor Show 2022 is set to be the greenest ever event of its type thanks to an innovative partnership with Coryton Advanced Fuels.
Coryton, a leading supplier of specialist and renewable fuels, will be the official fuels partner of the show, through its Sustain brand. Coryton will be supplying all the vehicles at the event, including those used for live test drives, with sustainable fuels to dramatically reduce carbon emissions. This will include the shuttle buses, cars used for live test drives, vehicles in the live arenas and those used by the show organisers.
Coryton will also be the main sponsor of the show’s live test drives. ‘Test Drive Live powered by Coryton’ will give showgoers the chance to take to the road in some of the latest cars from show’s exhibitors. This live element will add to what is already the UK’s most interactive automotive event.
As the leading supplier of bespoke fuels, Coryton’s team of experts tailor make over 4,000 unique blends each year, for everything from race cars to jet engines.
Sustain by Coryton focuses on developing sustainable fuels that contribute towards the push for net zero impact. Its second generation biodiesel and biogasoline utilises agricultural waste products and can reduce carbon emissions by more than 80 per cent. Importantly, it can be used in existing engines and with the refuelling infrastructure already in place. As a ready to go solution, it would allow society to move towards sustainability at a faster pace than many other options.
The British Motor Show CEO, Andy Entwistle, said: “While electricity is an option for more motorists than ever, many of us want to make a difference now, but for a variety of reasons the immediate move to EV may not be affordable or practical. The beauty of Coryton’s solution is that while the fuel emits carbon, it only emits what it takes out of the atmosphere in the process of it being refined, thus neutralising the overall carbon output. By using it in our own vehicles, we want to show that everyone can make a difference right now, even if they are continuing to use their classic car, supercar or everyday diesel SUV”.
In addition to the partnership with Coryton, the British Motor Show will further strengthen its green credentials by offsetting show visitors’ carbon output in partnership with ioffset. It will also help promote advanced fuels and electric cars to visitors, as well as electrified classics.
The British Motor Show will be held across 18-21 August 2022 at Farnborough International. Building on the success of its scheduling at last year’s show, advanced ticket prices are held from 2021 at £18.50 each, or £37 for a family of four. Tickets are available at www.thebritishmotorshow.live
