    Just to share, Malaysia is one of the countries which control air quality from fuel specifications, not from vehicle emission. Currently, we are still using Euro2M fuel Standard.. need to wait for a few more years to Euro4M.

    And i recall reading a few years ago where the Lorry Owner Assoc (something like that) took to court to dispute the huge number of jpj summons, issued to its members for smoky diesel emission. They brought all the techy stuff, and Since eye witness account bears a heavy testimony, They also brought along a barrel of diesel from spore and ran it thru the engine, after the first round using bolehdiesel...guess the judge can see for himself which diesel produced more cough & sputtered & spewed black smoke?

    fyi, Singapore fuel Standard:

    1.Euro5 on diesel after July 2013 (compliance only on sulfur, 10ppm)
    2.Euro4 on petrol after October 2013 (compliance only on sulfur, 10ppm)

    Singapore is cleaner in diesel only. Before the above implementation, no difference between their petrol and bolehland petrol...

    Haha, cheaper petrol in JB no longer easily available la..

    If you are in a petrol station in JB, please observe there is a small little notice (either at the pump or at the payment counter)..

    AMARAN KERAJAAN MALAYSIA

    Mulai 1 OGOS 2010, kenderaan berpendaftaran asing :

    1. Dilarang membeli minyak RON95
    2. Dilarang membeli lebih daripada 20 liter diesel


    Something like that la… I was told they go after the station owner/dealer, not the vehicle owner. How good the enforcement is another cerita la....

    p/s : I am not sure what Singapore government is going to do if the vehicle entering Singapore is filled with petrol with different Stantard...

    Your info is spot on. I was the brand's Account Director before the 'forced acquisition' ...the rich old cina pendatang was given another station to operate. In skudai I think..

    So don't play play. ..the ra$cals might come after all pendatangs' successful bizz...

    I hope our gahmen don't sit back and relax just because the skies are all clear suddenly. Prevention must be an ongoing pursuit.

    Following is the satellite picture from NEA Singapore as at 3:52pm this afternoon.

    Winds direction change, Peninsula looks good to have clear sky! (see blue dotted line)

    Watch up on PM2.5 level.

    Following is the satellite picture by NEA Singapore as at 2:20pm this afternoon.

    It looks great with winds blew away the haze from Peninsula and Singapore (see blue dotted line). Indonesian Foreign Minister said the affected areas on Sumatra dropped 75% to 4081 hectares! I guess this plays a significant role to give us clear sky in both countries. This morning, showers in Singapore helped to improved the air quality tremendously, PSI (Pollutant Standards Index) was low at 17 at about 3pm.

    K. Shanmugam, Singapore Foreign Minister, hinted the outcome of trilateral talks held yesterday in Brunei between Indonesia, Malaysia and Singapore has "extremely positive outcome".

    This issue has to resolve. I was told the Palm-Oil plantations in Sumatra is expanding fast from Riau to South Sumatra near Pelambang. Moreover, the cost of "slash and burn" versus normal biodegrade is 1:400.

    As such, Indonesia must enforce their laws and helps those private plantation owners in order to prevent recurrence of this "annual event".

    I checked with someone I knew in MPOB (Malaysian Palm Oil Board) on the practice of "slash-burning".

    Off the record, he said, it is actually the most effective method to destroy FUNGUS and PAARSITES growing in the plantation - other methods don't work as well or cost effective, so every now and then, DIAM-DIAM, ACT STUPID. START A FIRE, BLAME MAMA NATURE ....... OFFICIALLY ILLEGAL !!!

    Sheeeessshhhh ......

    Actually, the same with what our forefathers did too when they clear land to build houses... The fire will kill off the termites too in the process... And stay termite-free for decades.

    However, the burning is not as widespread loh... And more green back then to absorb the CO2...

    Actually, peat soil fire is actually of the more potent kind of burning... The smoke is more toxic and i think it's thicker too...

    There was a time on the land between USJ13 and USJ18, a feisty old lady used to bury rubbish and burn them not unlike peat fire... The ground would smoulder and the burning smell lingered in the air... No one was able to tell her to stop doing that and she evaded MPSJ's action too. Thank GOD she stopped doing it.

    A lot of those so-called corporations don’t have sense of Corporate Social Reasonability which should be self-regulating to monitor and ensure their activities compliance with the spirit of laws, ethical standards, and international norms. All they care about is money and enrich their BOD (Board of Directors) on the expense of others health and death.

    So, what so great about these corporations?!

    These corporations deserve to be punished and fine heavily when get caught! However, we need Indonesia to have strict enforcement or else coming next year it will be another round of hoo haa.

    Actually, I wanna say something but I cannot say…

    Maybe I say it this way..

    -----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Ah boy is selling cooking oil from his peanut farm. He started the technique to add the peanut oil into diesel and become a workable biodiesel..

    Ah Pak across the river also followed and because he has cheaper land and cheaper labor, he slowly overtook Ah boy and become the biggest producer of peanut-diesel in the village...

    The buyer is Ah Moh - someone who is very strict on environmental protection and insist what he buys must pass his own inspection and this inspection is called apanama peanut oil roundtable, something like that..

    Although Ah boy know Ah Pak slashed and burn the forest and caused a lot of problem to his family members, but because Ah Pak has violated the roundtable inspection and hence his peanut-diesel fail the inspection and non-competitive. So, Ah boy just kept quiet and let it happenen, every blardy year for the past n years..

    Interesting, isn’t it… ??
