Environment MEPs oppose relaxing diesel car emission test limits

EP ENVI Committee has voted against the relaxing of diesel car emission test limits. The draft decision to raise diesel car emission limits for nitrogen oxides (NOx) by up to 110%, along with the introduction of the long-awaited Real Driving Emissions (RDE) test procedure, would undermine the enforcement of existing EU standards, said Environment Committee MEPs. The motion for a resolution will be put to a vote by the full Parliament at the 18-21 January plenary session in Strasbourg.
