MENR: Process of restricting diesel engines import underway

“Some works are underway to restrict the import of old transport vehicles, especially diesel engines” Head of Environmental Policy Department of  The Ministry of Environment and Natural Resources Rasim Sattarzadə said, ONA reports.

He said that process is underway in order to promote the use of ecologically clean cars -  such as electromobiles and hybrid cars.“As an alternative fuel type compressed natural gas can be mentioned. It is useful for both safe operations of cars and the sharp reduction of harmful substances thrown into the atmosphere. Compressed natural gas is cheaper in comparison to other fuel types and increases the vehicle life cycle.”
