EghtesdaOnline: A member of the board of directors of the Isfahan Scrapping Centers Association believes that the acceptance of the equalization table for light and heavy vehicle scrappage will solve most of the problems in this field.
An automotive expert believes that most of the problems facing the vehicle scrappage plan can be solved, if the Department of Environment were to accept the equalization table.
The old vehicle scrappage plan was launched to alleviate air pollution, reduce fuel consumption and renovate the domestic automotive fleet.
However, the plan lost momentum following the parliamentary ratification that mandated the registration of a heavy vehicle against the same type that is scrapped. Consequently, the Department of Environment also insists on the same requisite for accepting the vehicle scrappage certificate.
“The scrapping centers have enough certificates for passenger cars and if the Department of Environment agrees with the equalization table, they can meet the needs of car manufacturers,” Jalal Amini-Fard, a member of the Board of Directors of the Isfahan Scrapping Centers Association, was quoted as saying by Donyaye Khodro.
