Clean fuel for Fiji

Dawn Gibson
Monday, June 16, 2014

FIJI should consider the bulk buying of Euro IV fuel for Pacific Island countries in order to reduce costs to each country, as well as fuel emissions per country.

Euro IV fuel is a measure of an acceptable standard of fuel emissions as decided by the European Union for its EU member states and generally, the higher the number, the cleaner the emission, the Australian Environment Department website explains.

The suggestion was made as part of contributions to the final Green Growth Framework for Fiji document expected to be presented to Cabinet for approval and endorsement.

"Transport use is probably one of the major causes of climate change — the impacts of which is facing all of us here in the Pacific Islands," explained the working group's chairman, Mark Borg. Mr Borg said it was important the document reflected efforts put into promoting fuel efficiency in all forms of transport.
