Kent-based engine detox company, EDT Automotive, has won bronze at the prestigious Green Apple Awards for Environmental Best Practice.
Managing director, David Holmes received the trophy from Damian Green MP at a glittering ceremony at the Houses of Parliament, London, last week.
Mr Holmes said: “For a small company like us to win a Green Apple Award is just fantastic.
“Our award-winning engine detox is proven to dramatically cut harmful emissions, providing a valuable new revenue stream for workshops and real world benefits that drivers can see and feel.”
EDT say they see a 64 per cent average reduction in emissions following treatment.
Carbon monoxide from petrol engines is reduced by 69 per cent and diesel smoke is reduced by 58 per cent.
With an effect likened to descaling a dishwasher, the EDT machine cleans petrol or diesel engines with an environmentally friendly solution.
It takes 13 minutes to remove up to half a litre of black sludge that doesn’t come out in an ordinary oil change.
EDT claim the results are close to doing a manual engine strip, with fuel economy increased by up to 20 per cent, power increased by up to 6bhp and torque increased by up to 7ft-lb.
Data recorded by a qualified MOT Tester using approved MOT test equipment shows the best emissions reductions for petrol and diesel cars.
