At Woodfelder Tree Care, everything we do is powered by petrol, blood, sweat and tears. Fortunately, the blood, sweat and tears are all carbon neutral. Petrol, on the other hand…
A lot of tree surgeons use regular petrol and add 2-Stroke oil. Sadly, this mixture contains harmful substances such as benzene, olefins and aromatics.
Here’s a quick rundown of the impact of these environmental pollutants
Benzene is a carcinogenic chemical linked with causing leukaemia. It is the substance in petrol and exhaust emissions which is most dangerous to health. Benzene accumulates in living organisms.
Aromatics can cause chronic nerve damage, fatigue and nausea. They contribute to ground-level ozone. Aromatics accumulate in living organisms.
Olefins eact in the body and form substances that cause cancer. Olefins are highly reactive and contribute to high levels of ground-level ozone.
- Ground-level ozone:
Ground-level ozone is a very aggressive and toxic gas, which leads to reduced lung function, coughing, chest pain and difficulty breathing.
Aspen Alkylate Petrol contains virtually none of these harmful substances and is therefore up to 99% cleaner than regular petrol when comparing the level of hazardous hydrocarbons.
Using Aspen Fuel is better for the environment and for our staff. It costs a little more, but it’s totally worth it, to safeguard the environment and our team.
