Environmental pollution and fuel efficiency can be achieved through new fuel standards, said Minister Petroleum, while inaugurating Euro-IV and V standard fuel testing laboratory at Hydrocarbon Development Institute of Pakistan (HDIP).

Minister for Petroleum Omar Ayub Khan has said that new fuel standards would prove helpful in controlling environmental pollution and improving efficiency of diesel and petrol engines.

He stated this while speaking after inaugurating a Euro-IV and V standard fuel testing laboratory at the HDIP, a body responsible to ensure provision of quality petroleum products across the country.

Following the directives, a strategy was being worked out by the Petroleum Division to start import of the Euro-IV & V fuel besides producing it at local level.

He said the laboratory would analyze new fuel standards, implemented by the government aimed at providing good quality high-grade fuels to motorists.
