China targets 30% reduction in vehicle emissions ahead of Winter OlympicsPosted On: 02-03-2016 By: Janelle van Deventer
With the Chinese government finalising its new 13th Five-Year-Plan to address environmental issues and improve air quality ahead of the Winter Olympics in 2022, all eyes are now focusing on the ambitious targets being set.
In September 2015, China’s Ministry of Environment Protection (MEP) announced that the next stage of its emissions control legislation (China VI) would be issued by the end of 2016 with an aim to reduce nitrogen oxide by 30%. In the meantime, the country’s most stringent emissions legislation, Beijing VI, is reportedly going to be enforced in Beijing by the end of 2017.
Steps are already under way to improve air quality in China, with many future legislative plans clearly outlined. For example, The Ministry of Environmental Protection has called for nationwide implementation of China V standards for all heavy-duty diesel vehicles from July 2017, and all light-duty diesel vehicles from January 2018. But with so many new regulations due to come into force, the need for the wider industry to understand the roadmap ahead has become more important than ever.
To achieve its ambitious five-year goals, the Chinese government is closely monitoring progress in US and Europe as it looks to learn from other countries experiences and successes. A key part of this includes adopting best practices for the incremental release of new regulations, in-use vehicle emissions tests, vehicle reform and recall, as well as fuel quality control.
