* Sri Lanka to use Euro 4 standard fuel from July
Wed, Jun 13, 2018, 12:39 am SL Time, ColomboPage News Desk, Sri Lanka.

June 12, Colombo: Sri Lanka's Petroleum Resources Development Ministry said the Euro 4 emissions standard Diesel and Petrol will be produced instead of the existing Super Diesel and Octane 95 Petrol from next month.

The Ministry says standard of the Super Diesel and Octane 95 Petrol will be raised by the measure.

According to the Ministry the first order for Euro 4 emissions standard Diesel and Petrol has already been placed and the first shipment would arrive in the country within next two or three weeks.

The use of high standard fuel would minimize the environmental pollution and enhance the performance of the vehicles, the Ministry claims.

The Euro four emissions standard fuel will be imported at a higher cost but it will be released to the market at subsidized prices.

The Ministry of Petroleum Resources Development said the project in line with the 2018 budget proposals will be implemented expeditiously.

The 2018 budget has proposed the importation of vehicles compliant with the Euro 4 emission standards. These vehicles are environmentally friendly and equipped with features such as air bags, seat belts and new emission levels that are effective in saving lives. The new measures will go into effect from July 1.
