New Delhi: World’s cleanest petrol and diesel are now being supplied in Delhi after state-owned oil firms advanced rollout of Euro-VI grade fuel by two years in a bid to combat alarming levels of air pollution.
Since Sunday, Delhi has become the first city in the country to leapfrog from Euro-IV grade petrol and diesel to Euro-VI, which just contains 10 parts per million (ppm) of sulphur as against 50 ppm in previous grade of fuel. Speaking at an event, oil minister Dharmendra Pradhan said the oil industry has shown its commitment to providing clean fuel and now it is time for the automobile industry to also start introducing Euro-VI vehicles.
IOC chairman Sanjiv Singh said no country in the world has gone from Euro-IV to Euro-VI in three years. “This is the ultimate fuel. There presently exists no better fuel anywhere in the world,” he said.
