Diesel Ban in Deutsch­land

Diesel World - - News -

A diesel ve­hi­cle ban has been ap­proved in se­lect ci­ties in Ger­many. The Fed­eral Ad­min­is­tra­tive Court in Leipzig stated that the ci­ties of Stuttgart and Dues­sel­dorf have le­gal au­thor­ity to ban older, higher-pol­lut­ing diesel cars. It’s a rul­ing which sets a prece­dent that could po­ten­tially be used to en­act sim­i­lar bans all across Europe. Af­ter ap­prox­i­mately 70 ci­ties sur­passed the Euro­pean Union’s al­low­able lim­its for ni­tro­gen ox­ides in 2017, the en­vi­ron­men­tal group Deutsche Umwelthilfe (DUH) brought the case be­fore the Fed­eral Ad­min­is­tra­tive Court.
