- The potential impact of the climate change debate and policy changes on industrial trends in logistics, automotive, and transport sectors.
- Rapid technological changes in the industry sectors related to automotive and transportation sectors, and the aspects of adaptation of both the business owners and the workforce.
- Shift from the traditional reactive maintenance practices to more advanced preventive or even predictive maintenance concepts, in both business and private automotive sectors.

- Stronger customer loyalty and repeat business
- Improved high-tech and ecological image resulting in more client visits
To share the best technique examples, in line with ANTISMOG’s open-source environmental best-practice sharing philosophy, the non-confidential technical and operational details of the specific projects are shared as Case Studies.
Both types of ANTISMOG’s clients, the fleet owners and the garage operators benefit from the hydrogen premix powered preventive maintenance tools and techniques. The open-source nature of the ANTISMOG preventive maintenance process allows for easier adoption of hydrogen premix concepts, which in turn benefits clients in all sectors of the economy, from a small independent garage owner to a large international fleet owner-operator franchise.
