Date of production of Euro-5 gasoline in Azerbaijan unveiled


February 19, Fineko/abc.az. Azerbaijan is to produce gasoline Euro-5 starting from 2022.

ABC.AZ reports that President Ilham Aliyev said about this during a meeting with Vusal Kerimli, the chairman of board of the Baku Transport Agency, on 18 February.

The head of state noted that additional measures will be taken in the coming years to update the bus fleet.

"In the following years the additional measures will be taken to update the bus fleet. At the same time I’m glad that currently the new imported buses are eco-friendly. It is no secret that the main cause of air pollution is not industrial enterprises and commercial facilities, but transportation vehicles. Therefore, in two years Azerbaijan is going to launch production of Euro-5 gasoline, and that is a big breakthrough," the country’s leader added.
