Singapore to adopt Euro VI emission standards for petrol vehicles

SINGAPORE: Starting September 2017, petrol vehicles in Singapore will have to comply with the Euro VI emission standards, the latest engine emission standards set by the European Union (EU).

The move will further reduce NOx (nitric oxide and nitrogen dioxide) and fine particulates – in particular the PM2.5 - from vehicular emissions and help to improve Singapore’s ambient air quality, the National Environment Agency (NEA) said on Monday (Dec 1).

The EU’s vehicular emission standards impose strict rules on tailpipe gas emissions of new vehicles sold in EU member states. They have also been progressively implemented in Singapore and other countries. Currently, the standard for petrol vehicles in Singapore is Euro IV.

“NEA has been in consultation with the automotive industry since early 2014 on the enhancement of vehicular emission standards, in order to provide the automotive industry with sufficient lead time to develop motor vehicles that are able to meet the emission requirements,” the agency said, adding that by September 2017, there will be an adequate supply and range of Euro VI vehicle models for consumers to choose from.

NEA also said that starting September 2017, it will accept petrol vehicles using Port Fuel Injection (PFI) technology that have achieved Japanese emission standards (JPN 2009) as being equivalent to meeting Euro VI emission standards.

The first issue that can’t be answered is the health of Thailand’s beloved King Bhumibol, who is now 83 years old. He is the world's longest reigning monarch, but elaborate birthday celebrations in December failed to mask concern over his health. More
