2012 market overview


China will implement Guo IV nationwide in 2013 and will implement Guo V in Beijing in the second half of 2012. Some of the major Chinese diesel engine manufacturers have already developed Guo VI products as part of their marketing strategy, but China hasn’t got any clear plans for Guo VI implementation. CN Stage III for off-highway vehicles is expected to come into force in either July 2013 or January 2014, so OEMs are still forming their diesel emissions reduction plans and considering which technologies are best to use.

Fuel Quality

As legislation develops, it is essential that fuel of the required quality is readily available. However, poor fuel quality continues to be an ongoing challenge for meeting emissions standards in China. Diesel fuel content stage 4 & 5 were announced recently but have not yet been enforced. It is anticipated that these will be implemented next year – this is crucial if China is to achieve the required Guo V standards in time.

The plan ahead

China has now entered its 12th five-year plan which sets the development direction for all industries for the period of 2011-2015. For the automotive industry, both on-highway and off-highway vehicles will be included, along with the implementation dates of diesel emissions legislation. The plan will also outline the role that new energy vehicles will play in this market, including electric and hybrid applications for commercial vehicles.

Fuel consumption limits

The Ministry of Industry and Information Technology (MIIT) have set fuel consumption limits for heavy-duty commercial vehicles and will soon announce when this will be implemented next year – much faster than the 2012/13 announcement previously anticipated.

The Diesel Emissions Conference Asia 2012 will discuss plans made for on-highway and off-highway legislation in China, provide an update on the production and supply of better quality fuel, and present strategies for thriving in Asia’s diesel emissions market.


There is a simple logic behind its potential. With a soaring output in commercial vehicles (4.3 million units sold in 2010), more diesel emissions technologies will be required to meet demand. Legislation pushes this need further up the agenda, and the view that SCR technology is the best short-term solution to achieving lower emissions is becoming more widely adopted.

To meet this demand, a solid AdBlue infrastructure is required. Once in place, China could become one of the biggest consumers of AdBlue in the world. Important moves are being made now to start the process, with strategic groups being formed to tacking the infrastructure challenge and the formation of quality standards. This is an exciting prospect for both domestic and foreign AdBlue stakeholders, and moves must be made now to ensure shares of the market are secured once it takes off.

Offsetting CO2 emissions, supported by Wema



We are pleased to announce Wema as the environmental sponsor at this year’s event.

Climate change is the most pressing global issue facing us all, with potential for significant community, biodiversity and environmental consequences across the world. To take responsibility for our impact on the climate, Integer in partnership with Wema are offsetting the carbon emissions from our events through ClimateCare.

ClimateCare is an organisation that reduces global greenhouse gas emissions on behalf of companies and individuals. These reductions are made through a range of projects around the world that not only make real reductions in carbon emissions, but also make a difference to people’s lives.
