  • As an EU directive becomes Swedish law, it will tighten up what is defined as an environmentally friendly car.
  • Per Östborn from the green motorists' association dislikes that the new definition would exclude biogas vehicles, saying that will make a sustainable transition for the entire transport sector harder.
  • Researcher at the IVL Swedish Environmental Research Institute Mats Ola Larsson agrees, saying biogas cars are a good environmental choice.
