Infrastructure Minister Andrzej Adamczyk gave an interview to the Polish Press Agency, in which he stated that the Polish government does not agree with the Euro-7 emission standard.
As we read, Infrastructure Minister Andrzej Adamczyk told PAP: – There is no agreement on the Euro 7 standard proposed by the European Commission. Its adoption will lead to a huge increase in the cost of production of cars and trucks. We will do our best to ensure that this offer does not come into force.
Recall that (according to IBRM Samar) the proposed Euro-7 standard, on which EU countries and the European Parliament will begin negotiations in 2023, will significantly tighten vehicle emission limits. PAP writes that Infrastructure Minister Andrzej Adamczyk met in Strasbourg with the transport ministers of the Czech Republic (they organized the meeting), Germany, Italy and remotely with the ministers of Slovakia, Romania, Hungary and Portugal.
Infrastructure Minister Andrzej Adamczyk told PAP: – We are concerned about the proposal of a new Euro 7 standard, which is a derivative of the very high ambitions of EU officials and groups that are pushing decisions that do not correspond to reality. This was confirmed at the meeting in Strasbourg. There is no agreement on the proposed Euro 7 standard. We expect the draft regulation to become more realistic. The timelines currently proposed cannot be met.
The official argued that together with the Euro-7 standard there would be a sharp increase in the cost of production of cars and trucks. “At the same time, it will slow down the search for technical solutions for zero-emission vehicles. Let me remind you that the promoted Euro-7 standard applies to cars with emissions. Its adoption will lead to a huge increase in the cost of production of cars and trucks – The RAP was informed about this by the head of the Ministry of Infrastructure.
