Exciting turn – Poland and Germany together in defense of diesel

In this case, Germany and Poland will play for the same goal?

The meeting of the Ministers of Germany, Italy, the Czech Republic, Poland, Romania, Hungary and Slovakia is behind us. One of the main topics was the ban on internal combustion engines. It assumes the agreement recently adopted by the European Parliament on changing the standards for carbon dioxide emissions.

Germany has formed an alliance with Italy and some Eastern European countries to oppose the planned phase-out of internal combustion engines from 2035, Reuters reports.

The allies set a condition – they will change their minds if cars using e-fuel (synthetic gasoline and diesel) are freed from the ban.

German Transport Minister Volker Wessing has indicated that skepticism about phasing out internal combustion cars is shared by, among others, Italy, Poland and the Czech Republic.

Berlin is in talks with Brussels and is looking for a solution “as soon as possible” before it can sign any agreement. The representative of the German government stressed the proposal requires urgent changes.

The ban on registration of vehicles that emit exhaust fumes from 2035, which has been planned and approved so far by the European Parliament, results from EU regulations to achieve climate neutrality in the EU by 2050.

On October 27, 2022, the Council of the European Union and the European Union concluded an agreement on stricter CO2 emission standards for new cars and trucks. Accordingly, from 2035 it will no longer be possible to register cars and vans with internal combustion engines in any EU member state.

On February 14, the European Parliament approved CO2 reduction targets for new passenger cars and commercial vehicles. This is part of the Ready for 55 package. New regulations pave the way for achieving the goal of zero CO2 emissions from new cars and trucks by 2035. The EU goal is to reduce CO2 emissions from new cars and trucks by 100%. compared to 2021. Intermediate targets have been set to reduce emissions for 2030 by 55%. for passenger cars and 50 percent. for pickup trucks
