Gasgoo.com. China’s Ministry of Environmental Protection (MEP) is developing a National Emission Standard V for vehicles, according to Ren Hongyan, Director of Air Pollution and Noise Control Division of MEP. He made the remarks during the 2009 International Forum on Chinese Automotive Industry Development (IFCAID) held last week in Tianjin.
Ren added that State Administration of Taxation and the Finance Ministry are also considering levying a car emission tax in future. The National Emission Standard V is expected to be published by 2015, according to him.
MEP recently banned gasoline vehicles below National Emission Standard I from driving in Beijing. China’s National Emission Standards have been mapped to the corresponding Euro standards.
