The Mercedes Benz Euro 6 Arocs gritters aim to reduce NOx by 97 per cent, reduce particulate matter by more than 99 per cent and cut fuel and CO2 emissions by five per cent.

Mitesh Solanki, local authority service director for EM, said: “EM has constantly challenged the market and highway industry to be more sustainable in its approach to service delivery.

“Particularly in London where we have constantly challenged ourselves to reduce the impact to air quality in collaboration with our fleet provision partner.

“The introduction of greener gritters further supports our aspirations and we hope the industry will follow our lead in order to support clients to deliver the challenging carbon reduction targets that is so rightly expected.”
