In a period of time could owners of older diesel cars get 5000 crowns in skrotpræmie to let their car retire at the normal 2200 dollars, as the premium is on.
many owners let themselves be tempted by the possibility, since the environmental protection Agency in February 2020 re-opened the special pool with access to an elevated skrotpræmie for diesel cars registered for the first time before 2006. In total, 9150 diesel cars scrapped in just three weeks.
It informs the environmental protection Agency in a press release.
- Thousands of Danish car owners took advantage of the opportunity to get an elevated skrotningsgodtgørelse for their older dieselbil, as the pool was open late. As expected, did it also force this time after the reopening of the pool in February, where we in the course of a few weeks paid skrotpræmie more than 9000 times. says Anne Elizabeth Kamstrup, head of unit, environmental protection Agency.

the Pot was 26 million, and the money was distributed on a first-come-first-served in the period from 24. February 11. march 2020, where many of the owners of a total of some 150,000 diesel cars registered before 2006 in Denmark, took up the offer.
Dieselpuljen was re-launched in order to boost the scrapping of the oldest and most polluting diesel cars. And it is no coincidence that it is precisely diesel cars registered before 2006, to be able to get grants.
the Older diesel cars are some of the largest emitters of the toxic NOx gases and other harmful particles. A dieselbil from before 2006 emits an average of about four times more NOx and significantly more particles than a new dieselbil.
- Each time an old dieselbil being scrapped, it is good for the environment. Therefore, it is positive that so many have availed themselves of the pot. It is a sign that the scheme has been very successful, where a lot of the most polluting diesel cars were scrapped much faster than they otherwise would, says Anne Elizabeth Kamstrup.
the Figures from the environmental protection Agency shows that vehicle owners in the central denmark Region ranks first for the most number of skrotninger in this place. Thus, in the Region Midtjylland for 27 percent of the scrapped diesel cars in this period. Then follows the north denmark Region and Region Zealand with 20 percent each, Region of southern denmark with 18 percent, and the Capital Region with 15 percent.
