Denmark to support diesel particle filters
Denmark is to spend DKr30m (€4m) over two years subsidising up to 30% of the cost of fitting diesel particle filters to lorries, according to media reports. The move appears to be a response to claims last year that fitting particle filters to all diesel engines would save up to 1,250 lives per year and DKr83bn over 15 years through avoided health impacts (EED 28/11/02). The government has resisted calls to bring forward application of EU "Euro IV" legislative emission limits that would effectively require such filters.
