Beijing to implement stricter China V emission standard next month

24 January 2013

Xinhua reports that Beijing plans to implement the China V emission standard—similar to Euro V—starting next month in an effort to reduce the city’s air pollution. Beijing implemented China IV (Euro IV) standards for light-duty vehicles in 2008; the implementation of the more stringent standards for motor vehicles has been planned for some time. (Earlier post.)

The standard will be applied to new cars on the auto market and motor vehicles that have yet to receive license plates, according to the report. As of 1 Feb., the sale and registration of diesel vehicles that cannot meet the new standard will be halted. Sales of substandard gasoline cars are to be stopped as of 1 March.

Beijing has a permanent population of around 20 million and some 5.2 million vehicles, with the number of private cars still on the rise. It is expected that the number of vehicles in the city will reach 6 million by 2015, said Li Kunsheng, director of the Beijing Municipal Environmental Protection Bureau’s vehicle management department. Once the new standard goes into effect, it will help the capital cut nitrogen oxide emissions from vehicles by about 40%, Li said.
