Romania: New pollution tax to be drafted for cars with low emissions standard

Romania’s Environment Ministry is working on a new pollution tax for cars with low emissions standard and high carbon dioxide emissions, environment minister Gratiela Gavrilescu said yesterday.

The number of registrations for these cars has doubled compared to last year, she added. About 350,000 cars with Euro 2- Euro 4 emissions standard have been registered in Romania this year, compared to 146,000 units in 2016.

The ministry set up a working group to find a method by which polluting cars could pay a pollution tax, Gavrilescu said.
