EU law on sulphur-free fuels in force

By News Editor / Updated: 01 Aug 2014
The new Directive aims at limiting the amount of sulphur in road vehicle fuels at 10 ppm from 2009
A new Directive which aims at limiting the amount of sulphur in road vehicle fuels at 10 ppm from 2009 was published in the Official Journal earlier this month. It requires that sulphur-free petrol and diesel be available by 2005 in the European Union. In order to achieve these goals Member states will provide incentives to speed up the introduction and foster the utilisation of sulphur-free fuels.

Germany, pioneer in the introduction of these measures, has already started to encourage industry to cut pollution from vehicles.
