New group examines clean air impact

THE National Society for Clean Air has joined forces with Tesco to launch a new cleaner vehicle fuels initiative. The initiative, which brings together business, industry, government, academia, consumer and environmental organisations, will examine the contribution cleaner fuels can make to reduce air pollution. The group met for the first time on Thursday and its first report will be published later this year.

The discussions centre on the environmental benefits from reformulating petrol and diesel with the aim of providing more information to fuel retailers, local authorities and consumers.

Organisations involved include the AA, Departments of Transport, Health, Trade and Industry, Environment, Friends of the Earth, Greenenergy, London First, Sainsbury's, the Society of Motor Manufacturers and Traders, Tesco, the Transport Research Laboratory and the UK Petroleum Industries Association.
