collaborative agreement with Beijing Municipal Environment Protection Bureau
Beijing, Aug. 20, 2010 — Southwest Research Institute (SwRI®)
and Beijing Municipal Environment Protection Bureau (BMEPB) signed a strategic
collaborative agreement on August 20, 2010.
Bruce Bykowski, vice president of SwRI’s Engine, Emissions and Vehicle Research
Division, and Robert Burrahm, the chief representative of SwRI’s Beijing office,
attended the signing ceremony. From BMEPB, Feng Huisheng, deputy director; Li
Kunsheng, chief of the vehicle emission control division; and Feng Yuqiao, dean
of the Beijing Municipal Vehicle Emissions Control Centre, and other staff
members attended the meeting.
Li Kunsheng said that as of the end of July 2010 there are 4.5 million vehicles
in Beijing and that figure is increasing at the rate of about 2,000 per day. The
number of vehicles is anticipated to reach approximately 6.5 million vehicles by
2015. Vehicle emission pollution will be one of the biggest contributors of air
pollution and more help is needed to solve this problem. BMEPB and SwRI will
develop a cooperative plan to address vehicle emission issues.
Meeting attendees visited the Beijing Municipal Vehicle Emissions Control Centre
to discuss preliminary requirements.
