Description:The European Parliament and Council have approved new rules to limit emissions from trucks and buses, paving the way for a final European Union accord before the end of 2000. The rules set mandatory limits on emissions of carbon monoxide, hydrocarbons, nitrogen oxides, and particulate and smoke from diesel engines used in trucks and buses. Restrictions will also apply to vehicles using natural gas or liquid petroleum gas (LPG). These rules may have spill-over effects on CO 2 emissions.
