NPA wins 2017 Climate and Clean Air Award for Outstanding Policy

Chief Executive Officer of the National Petroleum Authority, Hassan Tampuli, has reiterated the authority’s commitment to promoting clean environment, as ongoing policy to promote low sulfur diesel standards are enforced.

He said this when he received this year’s “Outstanding Policy” award from the Climate and Clean Air Alliance at the on-going Climate Change Summit (COP23) in Bonn, Germany.

According to him, Ghana is determined to collaborate with countries in the sub-region to adopt a harmonized fuel specification for the entire sub-region similar to what currently pertains in the East Africa sub-region.

A statement from the Alliance said Ghana is the first West African country to move to low sulfur diesel and with a new sulfur content standard of 50 parts per million (ppm), down from 3000 ppm, a remarkable achievement.

“This improved fuel quality directly affects Accra’s 3 million residents, reducing exposure to poor urban air quality and fine particles. With cleaner fuel now available, Accra can lead in the adoption of cleaner bus standards, including importing ultra-low sulfur diesel for Euro 6/VI – soot free – buses.”
