Biofriendly And Akron Double Down On Their Commitment To Improve The Environment


Biofriendly Corporation announced today that Akron and Biofriendly distributor, Horeb Energia y Combustibles Ecologicos have extended their agreement to provide clean fuels in Mexico. Akron, Horeb and Biofriendly began their relationship in 2013.

The partnership started when the companies explored the possibility of combining Akron’s engine-cleaning additive with Biofriendly’s Green Plus® smog reducer in order to develop something new for the Mexican market. After rigorous compatibility and emissions testing, a new product, Green Road, was born. Since its introduction to the Mexican market in June of 2013, Green Road has removed over 4 million pounds of Carbon Dioxide from the environment in Mexico.

By extending their partnership, the three companies have committed themselves to not only maintain their existing efforts to help the environment, but to expand those in order to make an even bigger difference to the air quality in Mexico.

Global Context

Increasing evidence suggests that our planet is exposed to numerous pollutants that harm the health of the living beings that inhabit it. According to the United Nations, the large cities that occupy 2% of the world's territory emit 70% of the polluting gases. According to the UN, this situation could worsen, due to the accelerated economic and population growth that some developing countries are experiencing.

Pollutants are chemical or biological substances in the form of thermal energy, radiation or noise that adhere or come into contact with air, soil or water, affecting their composition, causing damage to the flora, fauna and people that inhabit those ecosystems.
