Project Number: 35466-013


Air pollution became a serious public health problem in Dhaka and other major urban cities in Bangladesh. Vehicles were the foremost source of urban pollution. The main arterial roadways had high levels of ambient pollutants due to traffic density, poor traffic flow, and poor maintenance of vehicles. The major pollutants were suspended particulate matter (SPM), carbon monoxide (CO), sulfur dioxide (SO2) and airborne lead. Thus, the project was formulated to create the initial infrastructure for supplying compressed natural gas fuel in Dhaka and establishing the initial critical number of compressed natural gas -fueled vehicles.
