CAT5 - The simple to use Catalyst solution

COVID-19: Pollution levels fall 'dramatically'

By Jim Wright, Proof of Concept and Sales consultant

It is being reported on news and logistics channels that city views once covered in smog are clearer and air pollution has fallen dramatically. As a result of the restrictions on movement, the average air pollution levels have fallen to their lowest since recordings began in 2000 by more than 20% according to the London Air Quality Network.

The monitors record levels of nitrogen dioxide, sulphur dioxide, particulates and ozone levels in and around our major cities.

Since the lockdown only low levels of pollution have been detected across the capital, so much so the monitors have registered these results as a possible fault.

It is reported by Clean Air for London that despite the low recordings, toxicity remains and that the reduction in traffic and construction were behind the lower levels, scientists are studying this data carefully and think it could shape the advice they give to policy makers.


A leading medical professional has stated “We have been given a natural experiment that we never expected to have to drastically reduce those levels of transport emissions”.

We have had huge behavioural changes forced upon us because of Covid-19 and we are all having to adapt and behave differently. Now that we are able, where possible work remotely from home we should realise we don’t have to take the car to work and we don’t have to travel in to the office every single day.

If one positive could come out of this, we would re-evaluate how we do things and ask what can be done to retain the low levels of emissions and harmful gasses:

CAT5 a fuel catalyst has a simple cost-effective solution that can help in reducing emissions and harmful gases by a reported 80% and give fuel savings up to 15%

CAT5 is unlike other fuel additives in that it uses the power of catalysts to deliver improvements in fuel economy and reduced emissions.

CAT5 has been tested and is being used by Glencore Mining in South Africa having delivered significant improvements in fuel economy and exhaust emissions, NOX, CO, CO2 and Particulates. Maintenance costs were reduced due to improvements in filter service intervals.
