Inspections measure car exhaust emissions

By M.ZOLJARGAL

 

The Ulaanbaatar City Air Quality Department(UCAQD), the Traffic Police Department, the National Auto Transportation Center (NATC), and the National Agency of Hydrology, Meteorology and Environment Monitoring (NAHMEM), are jointly organizing inspections to measure cars’ exhaust emissions.

Inspections are particularly measuing whether the carbon monoxide emitted is within the permitted levels. Inspections will continue for a year. If the results indicate that most of the cars operating in Ulaanbaatar are emitting above the permitted levels of exhaust fumes, measures will be put in place to import better quality fuel and less-polluting cars. Car exhaust fumes currently comprise over 20 percent of Ulaanbaatar’s air pollution.

Below is a short interview with an official of NAHMEM, D.Unurbat, regarding the matter.

-How do you measure the level of car exhaust fume emissions?

- UCAQD officials, NATC engineers and police officers are diagnosing the emission levels at police departments at Bayanburd, Chuluun-Ovoo, Sapporo Intersection and 120 Myangat with a specific tool that measures exhaust fume amounts. Any car with exhaust fume emissions exceeding the permitted level will be prohibited from being driven and its state number plate and official documents will be confiscated. Owners of these cars will be able to get the documentation back once the car is brought within the permitted level of emissions.
