Clean Air day

Clean Air Day 2023 is a powerful reminder that the air we breathe is not a limitless resource. Air pollution is responsible for serious health risks and contributes to climate change. Fact!

But before the cynics and sceptics rear up with “here he goes again” let me just put some hard to comprehend facts up for you to ponder.

  • Last year, nearly 10,000 people died in London due to causes attributable to air pollution.

  • Last year, nearly 40,000 people died in the UK due to causes attributable to air pollution.

  • Last year 7 million people died globally due to causes attributable to air pollution.

  • To put that 7 million deaths in to perspective, that is more than the numbers of deaths from Malaria, TB and HIV in a year put together.

I’m not here to spread doom and gloom far from it, yes of course I’ll always start with the challenges but my over riding abundant passion is for the solutions.

Clean Air Day celebrates the call to action encouraging governments and people to roll up their sleeves and make a difference. And that is really happening right now.

Cleaner air quality will be driven by innovation, ground-breaking technology development, sustainable alternative fuels and smart city initiatives.

The work at Syntech Biofuel is a prime example. Every litre of Syntech ASB (Advanced Smart Biofuel) that replaces standard diesel fossil fuel reduces greenhouse emissions by nearly 90%.

So let’s take a deep breath of gratitude for the progress we’re making to leave a breath of fresh air for the generations to come.
