Sulphur content of liquid fuels

Directive 1999/32/EC on reduction of sulphur content of certain liquid fuels aims to reduce the emissions of sulphur dioxide resulting from the combustion of certain types of liquid fuels and thereby to reduce the harmful effects of such emissions on man and the environment. These reductions in emissions of sulphur dioxide shall be achieved by imposing limits on the sulphur content resulting from the combustion of certain types of liquid fuels as a condition for their use within the territory of the Member States.
