China’s capital Beijing plans to ban all diesel trucks from the city with an emission standard of "National 3" in two years. In the short run, there will be a partial ban on these trucks, from 6 a.m. to 11 p.m. in the fifth ring roads of Beijing, starting this Thursday. The partial ban applies to trucks with eight tons or bigger loads of goods, Reuters reported. A full ban will go into force from Sept. 21, 2019. China has five levels of emission standards. Trucks with "National 1" and "National 2" standards are already banned from the city.
