ECOWAS Director of Energy, Bayaornibe Dabire, has said countries of the Economic Community of West African States (ECOWAS) have set a January 2025 deadline for the adoption cleaner fuels and vehicles to reduce air pollution.
He spoke at the African Refiners & Distributors Association (ARDA) 2021 Virtual Workshop Series where he said that the range of fuel specifications in the sub-region currently spans 50 Parts Per Million (PPM) sulphur in some countries to 10, 000 ppm in others.
He said the need for harmonisation led to the issuance of ECOWAS directive C/DIR.2/09/20 last year, which covers exhaust gas and particulate emission limits for two-wheeled, light and heavy vehicles.
