Why It Is Important
To Do Emission Testing?
The Internal Combustion Engine is a device that converts fuel energy into usable kinetic energy for transportation. A well-functioning engine produces CO2, SOx, NOx, H2O, and energy through fuel combustion with ambient air. Poor combustion leads to increased emission of hydrocarbons and CO, seen as black smoke. Vehicle emission testing helps assess engine performance. Higher emissions mean more fuel waste, air pollution, disease risks, and financial loss. Emission test results provide early insights into vehicle condition for owners.
What is VET Trust Fund?
The VET Trust Fund is the exclusive regulatory authority overseeing the Vehicle Emission Testing Programme and Its primary objective is the enhancement and regulation of Sri Lanka's vehicle emission testing initiative. Notably, the VET Fund plays a pioneering role in advancing air quality management within the country with a collaboration of partner organizations. VET fund provides crucial support for research and projects aimed at elevating ambient air quality and optimizing traffic management. This mission is facilitated by a central project office located at the Department of Motor Traffic in Narahenpita. The project office operates under the guidance of the Cabinet-approved AirMac committee, further underscoring its strategic and authoritative approach.
