People in Hong Kong who care about air quality should celebrate: on March 1, the government launched an ex gratia payment scheme that provides incentives to phase out some 82,000 old and polluting diesel commercial vehicles.

Last week, the Environmental Protection Department announced details of a subsidy programme to replace catalytic converters and oxygen sensors on taxis and minibuses that are run on liquefied petroleum gas, and said that a more rigorous emission-testing regime for petrol and LPG vehicles will be implemented next April.
