Since the 24. February has the for owners of diesel cars older than the year 2006 have been possible to get 5000 crowns in skrotpræmie to let dieselbilen retire at the normal 2200 dollars, as the premium is on.
That was allocated 26 million dollars in the pot for payout to the owners of aging diesel vehicles, but now the 26 million used up. Thus closed the environmental protection Agency for new applications on Monday 9. march.
It writes the FDM.
The 26 million equivalent according to the environmental protection Agency to the payout for around 9000 diesel cars. Figures from the bilstatistik.dk, which brings together all the figures of the Danish car fleet, shows that there are at least 150,000 diesel cars registered before 2006 in Denmark.
In 2019 was scrapped about 23,000 older diesel cars as a result of the scheme.

the Pool of 26 million crowns was a part of a total pool of a total of 100 million kroner, which was devoted to environmental issues to get more people to scrap old diesel cars to get more money in skrotpræmie.
the Pot in 2019 was exhausted in a very short time, and now it has been shown also to go fast in the year in which the 26 million was spent on the two weeks, though the pool was actually open until 31. march.
At the auto industry Denmark, it was thought, as the 2020 part of the pot was opened, that neither the scrapping premium or the pot was big enough.
- the scrapping premium should be made permanent, and puljebeløbet should be significantly bigger. The new scheme accommodates just 26 million dollars. In the beginning of 2019, earmarked to 67 million to a similar scheme was quickly exhausted. A green transition of our car fleet would require wins in both ends of the consumers. Both when buying a greener car, but also when they choose to send the old and obsolete car for scrap, said Gitte Seeberg, adm. director in the auto industry in Denmark, then in a press release.
At FDM they now have the same message, after that the 2020 part of the pot has been used up.
- The elevated skrotpræmie has been a success and has helped to get many of the unwanted older diesel cars away from the roads. Therefore, we also look like to find new money, so you can extend the system and like to extend it to all baby boomers of the diesel vehicles without a particulate filter, " says Dennis Long, a legal consultant in the FDM, for FDM.
