Non-road diesel

01 Apr 2002

The draft 2005 Fuels Directive, proposed by the European Commission in May 2001 (updating 98/70/EC), included a consolidation of the requirements for non-road diesel, but did not impose any more stringent limits on this fuel. Amongst its amendments to the Commission’s proposal, the EU Parliament proposed that non-road diesel should meet the same specifications as road diesel from 2005. As we reach the last stages of the legislative process, this debate is still ongoing.
