EU considering new limitations on diesel engines in non-road machinery

ENN Health - Thu, 06/04/2015 - 02:03
As air pollution spikes in Europe’s cities prompt car-free days and talk of banning diesel cars, it’s easy to forget the other culprits behind the air quality crisis: diesel machines. Known in legislation by the innocuous term ‘non-road mobile machinery’, their air pollutant emission limits are now finally under revision.The last directive dated back to 1997 and the new rules will set standards for decades to come.

Efficient regulation of emissions sources is therefore key to mitigating the exposure of citizens to air pollution.
