NZ’s Urban Air Quality Debated

The quality of New Zealand’s fuels and urban air quality as compared to other countries will be the focus of a conference on vehicle emissions in Wellington on 27 - 28 June 2001.

The conference, ‘The New Zealand Road to Cleaner Air’, is being run by The Energy Federation of New Zealand. The Federation was established in the mid-90s to promote environmentally acceptable development of energy resources. Membership is made up of New Zealand’s largest energy producers such as the oil, coal, electricity and gas industries and other businesses with an interest in energy issues.

Conference topics range from the pros and cons of fuel additives to global vehicle emissions standards, Auckland Regional Council’s 0800 Smokey campaign and the latest in engine technologies designed to reduce emissions. Speakers include international representatives from Ford, BP, Mobil and Environment Australia.

Energy Federation Chairman, Rob Whitney, says it is very timely for the New Zealand energy sector to discuss these issues now, especially with the Government about to make significant policy decisions to improve air quality.

“New Zealand is at a critical stage on its road towards cleaner air and anyone interested in fuels, vehicles or transport strategies in relation to urban air quality should attend,” Mr Whitney says.
The conference is being held at the Duxton Hotel in Wellington.
