Event power specialist, Midas has revealed a switch to European fuel Green B+ diesel, a renewable fuel which it says outperforms both bio and fossil diesel options.

Midas, which specialises in biodiesel generators, is the first temporary power company to switch to the fuel that has been developed by, and is exclusively distributed via Green Biofuels.

According to Green Biofuels, independent tests show that, at 70 per cent of maximum generator load, Green B+ slashes NOx emissions by 27 per cent compared to red diesel. It also said that it delivers a 55 per cent reduction in greenhouse gases against red diesel.

Sue Woodward, marketing consultant at Green Biofuels, comments: “The independent results for our fuel have been truly groundbreaking. In terms of particulates emissions, a Tier 2 generator engine achieved the standard of a Tier 5 engine, without any retrofits or adaption.

“Midas has been at the vanguard of alternative fuels. It’s been very happy to test Green B+ in its generators and the Midas team is a pleasure to work with.”

Adds David Noble, managing director at Midas: “Green B+ is priced pretty much parallel to red diesel and its performance, and its low emissions, are remarkable. It’s the first choice for all our machines now and I’m proud that Midas’ reputation led Green Biofuels to us first.”
