ProTech joins A1 Team Monaco in a technical partnership

ProTech of Monte Carlo has just signed a three-year partnership agreement with A1 Team Monaco. The Monegasque company has decided to make an active commitment alongside the first racing team in the world to have embarked on a 'Zero Carbon' programme.

This means that, as a participant in the A1GP World Cup of Motorsport "Powered by Ferrari", the Monegasque team will not only be facing the sporting aspect of the challenge, but will also be looking for long-term solutions to offset CO2 emissions.

'By adopting the eco-technological aesthetic measures normally used in the context of everyday driving, developed in the ProTech research and development laboratory, to today's competitive scene, we have just taken a step in the right direction,' enthuses Clivio Piccione, A1GP seat holder and A1 Team Monaco driver.

A feeling shared by Pascal Mouchet, Managing Director of ProTech Monte Carlo: 'We are delighted to have finalised this technical partnership with A1 Team Monaco. The fact that it fits into a long-term programme for the reduction of carbon emissions is absolutely consistent with our image. The environment is of fundamental importance to us, and by distributing our star product, the Laser Wash, in France and abroad, we have already helped to save hundreds of millions of litres of water.'

This waterless washing product, developed by the ProTech research and development laboratory in Monaco, is unrivalled in its effectiveness. With its unique formula, it saves 200 litres of water for every car washed. In 2004 the judges for the Monaco Business Awards were so impressed that they awarded it the prize for innovation.
