Drive for the green revolution, ready the decree of the climate – QN Engines


In view of the summit at the United Nations on September 23, Italy has prepared a decree-law, promoted by the minister ofthe Environment Sergio Costa, of measures urgent on the changes in the climate.

You may go to the Cdm today. Or more likely slipping to next week.

Those who live in metropolitan cities the most polluted, and scrap type-approved vehicles up to Euro 4 will have a tax credit of 2 euros for the purchase of subscriptions to public transport and shared cars to low-impact. For taxi drivers and truckers, the discount can be used for the purchase of low-emission vehicles, or electric

The news of the decree, climate

People living in metropolitan cities affected by the infringement proceedings that the european 2014/2147 and 2015/2043, for the non-compliance of Italy to air quality standards, and “scrap type-approved vehicles up to Euro 4, is awarded a tax credit by means of an item of expense amounting to 2 thousand euro, which can be used within five years for the purchase of subscriptions to local and regional public transport and mobility services shared”.

The tax credit is also granted to the licence holders of public transport square. And road hauliers operating in the metropolitan cities that “rottamano vehicles with Euro 4 or lower, can be used for the replacement of the vehicle with hybrid, electric or low emission”.

Always for the residents of the metropolitan cities the most polluted, article 2 provides for a refund of up to € 250 of expenses for school bus service, if they use means reduced emissions. Art 3 provides for 15 million shares of reforestation in the metropolitan cities.

The other articles

Skip instead, because they will have to be agreed with the MEF, the delicate article 6. Which included a cut of 10% per year from 2020 on the subsidies that are environmentally harmful. In 2017 were worth more than 19 billion.

Remain the article 7, which introduces you to procedures, “the analysis of the coherence of the work for the purposes of climate change”. And article 10, which includes provisions to speed up the construction of storage facilities, and waste treatment.

Ok the article 11 to reduce the packaging of food and detergents. Provides for the 2020-2022 “a contribution equal to 20% of the cost of the purchase of products in bulk and draught-free packaging”. This, in the form of a discount on the price of sale to consumers.

It is still uncertain the presence of the article 12 on secondary raw materials. The original wording required the regions to set the codes and the ministry had three months of time to give the guidelines. Too many, probably.
