German particle filter incentives plan attacked

Greenpeace Germany has strongly criticised the government's proposal to offer incentives to motorists retrofitting particle filters to their diesel cars or buying filter-equiped new models (EED 12/05/05). The maximum €350 incentives will encourage only inferior filters so failing to cut emissions significantly, the group said. It called for incentives of €1000, targeted at existing vehicles rather than new - which it called a subsidy for the car industry - and for the EU-recommended emission threshold for incentives of 5mg/km to become a legal limit from 2008 (EED 14/01/05). See press release.
