UPSRTC to interchange BS-II, BS-IV diesel bus engines with BS-VI, Auto Information, Automobilnews

Bareilly: In an try to curb air air pollution attributable to vehicular emission, the Uttar Pradesh State Highway Transport Company (UPSRTC) is planning to interchange its buses working with BS2 and BS4 diesel engines with BS6 engines. The transfer additionally comes within the wake of a Supreme Courtroom order to auto business to reconfigure their engines to fulfill emission management norms by April 2020.

In response to UPSRTC officers, BS6 autos are simpler as the current engines emit an enormous quantity of sulphur, most dangerous for well being. Thus, shifting to BS6 engines will drastically scale back sulphur emission and trigger much less environmental air pollution.
