Calypso Coaches are proud to be one of few coach companies who take their environmental impact seriously enough to use Biodiesel. The main ingredient of Biodiesel is vegetable oil, a harmless renewable resource. The plants absorb CO2 when growing which is released when we burn the oil. That's CO2 neutral. The only extra CO2 emmisions from the process is from the energy used in the growing, procesing and transport of the oil. We use recycled oil, It is then treated and used as you would normal diesel fuel but as it is a recycled, renewable resource it can be used without the extra CO2 emissions! (Of course when refueling away from base we are forced to use conventional Diesel)
Where possible we use enviro freindly tyres. These tyres have a reduced rolling resistance which in turn reduces the amount of energy requred to turn them. This further reduces the amount of fuel we use.
Our buses are maintained to stringent standards which not only ensures reliability and safety it also means they are more efficent and will produce less particulates ensuring cleaner air for us all..
We also use a product line called Bi-Tron. These products are additives for fuel and oil which noticably reduce fuel consumption and wear in engines and transmissions. In fact this product is so effective we became an AGENT! For more information please click on the Bi-Tron logo or use the link on the left.
We continue to seek ways to further reduce our environmental impact.
