He explains that IPT's initiative to launch "Quantum" falls within this context that the company have started it since 2012 with the establishment of IPT Energy Center (IPTEC). This initiative is an integral part of the study presented by the "National Campaign for Air Pollution Reduction in Lebanon Through Efficient Energy Use in Land Transportation" and carried out by IPTEC, since it upholds one of the key recommendations of this campaign that aims at improving the quality and specifications of fuel in Lebanon, and shifting towards the use of the cleaner fuels in the transport sector, in order to address the environmental and health issues related to the combustion of fuel in vehicles' engines and generators. Therefore, "Quantum" comes to fulfill IPT's strategy in enhancing its products and services in Lebanon, developing them further to meet the highest Lebanese standards, and taking initiatives that reduce emissions and fuel consumption.

Dr. Issa concluded by highlighting Quantum's benefits that contribute to fuel economy, power and responsiveness, engine protection, and less pollution, and consequently in lowering the impact of pollutants on the environment and human health.

He then invited other companies to follow the same path of IPT in the approach of energy sustainability. He said: "The importance of this conference is that it reflects the vitality of the private sector.

IPT's initiative today "Quantum" is a real testament to this, and it is a clear and practical solution that everyone can benefit from. He concluded by congratulating IPT for this achievement and invited other companies to join efforts and put an end to this environmental problem.
