Underground efforts to reduce carbon emissions

MERSEY Tunnels last year saved more than 3,000 Tonnes of CO2 being pumped into the atmosphere by switching to “cleaner” electricity.

The Tunnels have also cut their own electricity consumption by almost ten per cent during the past year – mainly due to converting their ventilation fans to variable speed drive.

Neil Scales, Chief Executive and Director General of Merseytravel, said:- “We place great importance on our environmental responsibilities in all aspects of our business and we were the first transport authority to develop an Environmental Sustainability Strategy.  To put these figures into perspective we have reduced enough carbon emissions compared to three years ago, to fill 18,978 double decker buses with CO2.”

Merseytravel achieved the CO2 savings by switching from standard electricity to Combined Heat and Power electricity (CHP).

The cleaner form of power is generated through a fuel-efficient technology, which utilizes by-product heat that is normally wasted to the environment.
