Oil-rich Abu Dhabi wants cleaner fuels

The environmental regulators in Abu Dhabi, one of the most modern cities in the world, want government-owned vehicles and taxis to run on natural gas. According to a report published in Al Dhabi and reported on gulfnews.com, the vehicles will be converted to run on CNG by 2012. All government diesel vehicles will be converted to run on Ultra Low Sulfphur Fuel with at least Euro III emission limits.

Already the Abu Dhabi National Oil Company has installed a CNG filling station. Abu Dhabi, located on the Persian Gulf, is the largest of the seven Emirates.
