Eminox Retrofit CRT® technology helps Hewitt Sportsturf reduce emissions in London’s NRMM LEZ

Hewitt Sportsturf, specialists in the design, construction and maintenance of natural grass sports surfaces, has reduced emissions from its equipment by retrofitting Eminox’s Continuously Regenerating Trap (CRT®).

The company’s three JCB 714 Articulated Dump Trucks, fitted with the best available retrofit technology, ensured compliance for use in London’s Non Road Mobile Machinery (NRMM) Low Emission Zone (LEZ).

Hewitt Sportsturf work on a number of high profile sports grounds in London’s NRMM LEZ, including Arsenal’s Emirates Stadium and Tottenham Hotspur’s White Hart Lane.

Eminox fitters installed the equipment at Hewitt Sportsturf premises, providing a convenient, flexible and practical service that avoided disruption to the company’s busy schedule.

“Since the CRT® system was retrofitted, the trucks have operated trouble-free and we are sure our clients will appreciate that we are doing our part to tackle air pollution in London. We believe that the Eminox CRT® represents best available technology for achieving regulatory compliance.”

Ryan Hewitt, Hewitt Sportsturf


Construction sites and other major venues, such as sports grounds, which use NRMM must comply with minimum standards in London’s NRMM LEZ. By retrofitting with Eminox CRT®, Hewitt Sportsturf has ensured its machinery is suitable for use anywhere within Greater London, including the Central Activity Zone and Canary Wharf.

The Eminox CRT® retrofit system is VERT certified and approved by the Energy Savings Trust (EST) for NRMM.  It is renowned for being a robust, reliable system.
