Improving truck emissions is better than switching to electric vehicles, officials said

Jakarta (ANTARA) – The Ministry of Environment and Forestry stated that increasing emission standards for trucks and heavy vehicles would be a more efficient step to reduce pollution levels in the Jabodetabek (Jabodetabek) area compared to switching to electric vehicles.

The Ministry’s Director General of Pollution and Environmental Damage Control, Sigit Reliantoro, said that a study regarding the contribution of the transportation sector to air pollution in Jabodetabek is currently being carried out.

“Preliminary results show that if we focus on increasing emission standards for trucks and heavy vehicles, the costs will be much lower than converting all vehicles to electric,” he said at a press conference in Jakarta, Thursday.

He said improving truck emissions would help reduce more particles in the air compared to converting conventional buses to electric buses.

Reliantoro said the study was still ongoing and would help form a complete picture of the sources of pollution in Jabodetabek. The study is expected to be completed by the end of this year.

Regarding the current level of pollution in Jabodetabek, he said the condition was not as bad as last year.

Rainfall in recent weeks has helped clear the air, he added. For this reason, the Ministry has discussed the use of weather modification technology (TMC) with the Meteorology, Climatology and Geophysics Agency (BMKG) to help overcome air pollution.

“We recently had discussions with the TMC BMKG team. “If pollution is still at an unhealthy level for a week, we will ask for weather modifications,” said Reliantoro.

Previously, the National Research and Innovation Agency (BRIN) stated that rain triggered by weather modification technology had proven effective in reducing the air pollution index in Jabodetabek.
