A road map for cleaner fuels and vehicles in Asia

Vehicle emissions in many Asian countries are expected to increase over the next few decades, as the vehicle population increases. If no action is taken to clean up fuels and vehicles, urban air quality will continue to decline. Reducing emissions from motor vehicles depends upon introducing cleaner fuels for the advanced emission control technologies that require these cleaner fuels. A key first step has been the worldwide drive to eliminate lead in gasoline, which has resulted in more than 90 per cent of the world's gasoline becoming lead-free. It is now time to address all fuel issues, including sulfur in fuel, additives, and other fuel components. A Road Map for Cleaner Fuels and Vehicles in Asia is designed to provide decision makers with up-to-date information on how to clean up fuels in Asia by developing their own road maps. This regional road map discusses the interaction between fuels and vehicle technologies and the approaches that Asian refineries can take to produce cleaner fuels, and it recommends next steps.
