Government supports stricter CO2 emission limits for heavy-duty vehicles – biogas to be taken into account

Press release 30.03.2023 13.27
These limits will promote the manufacture of zero-emission and even more energy efficient vehicles and thus improve access to these in Finland as well. However, the Government considers it important that the target for 2040 will not be further tightened during the proceedings. There should also be room for other alternative fuel systems besides those using electricity and hydrogen. In addition to electricity and hydrogen, the use of renewable methane and liquid renewable fuels should be taken into account in the work on the proposal.
