Can you imagine surviving without your skin? It is a layer of protection that is pertinent for the wellbeing of the human body. The ozone layer in the atmosphere also plays a similar role for all living beings on the planet. Without it, civilisation would cease to exist. The importance of the ozone layer cannot be underestimated and its diminishing thickness is concerning to all of us. The list of things that deplete the ozone layer is long. Manufactured halocarbon refrigerants, solvents, propellants, and foam- blowing agents (chlorofluorocarbons [CFCs], HCFCs, halons) are referred to as ozone-depleting substances (ODs). These substances create holes in the stratospheric ozone layer, letting in harmful UV rays of the sun. On top of that, combinations of certain harmful gases lead to the formation of ground-level ozone or ‘bad ozone’. This kind of ozone forms about 2 miles above ground and has harmful implications for human beings. Diesel is one of the biggest factors that lead to ozone-related problems.
The diesel engine is extremely important in modern society’s day-to-day operations. It is widely employed in land and marine transportation, as well as providing electrical power. It is also used in a variety of farming, construction, and industrial activities. Diesel is a key aspect of public and private transportation, and its use is likely to continue and grow in the near future.
However, diesel is one of the most significant contributors to global pollution problems and ozone depletion. It is only going to get worse as the number of diesel-powered vehicles grows. Diesel emissions lead to a variety of cardiovascular and respiratory ailments as well as cancer. In addition, it pollutes the air, water, and soil, reduces visibility, and creates global climate change. It is considered to be one of the major causes of global warming, and this is not an individual or national problem, but a huge concern on a global level.
World Ozone Day falls on the 16th of September. On this occasion, we would like to highlight the importance of energy distribution procedures that help in reducing carbon emissions and help conserve manpower and wastage/spilling of diesel. Repos has built the fastest, easy to use e-commerce service for diesel delivery for commercial purposes. This not only tackles the problem of dead mileage head-on by cutting down on excessive trips to the petrol pump, but also stops oil spillage.
At Repos we believe that if in the next five years, 50% diesel is delivered through an app at doorstep, we will be making an impact worth planting 23.9 crore trees, which equals twice the size of the city of Mumbai. Repos Energy is run by the power couple Chetan Walunj and Aditi Bhosale Walunj, and is currently working on diesel, but aims to replicate the model for other green fuels in the near future when the country’s infrastructure is developed enough to leave fossil fuels behind.
Green options to roll out of Repos will include LNG, CNG, LPG and even electric power. The future of India is green, and Repos aims to be a significant part of this future.
