In the last year was earmarked 65 million dollars to a higher skrotpræmie on old diesel cars, as the owners instead of the usual 2200 dollars could get 5000 dollars to scrap their dieselbil, if it was from before 2006.
The 65 million was quickly used up, and thus it was already 1. July of the same year the end of to get more money to scrap older diesel cars.

Now it becomes again possible to obtain a higher gain in order to scrap his old dieselbil. 24. February to and with 31. march 2020 raised the scrapping premium for diesel cars older than the year 2006 from the 2200 dollars to 5000 dollars.
It writes the environmental protection Agency in a press release.
set aside 26 million dollars in the dieselpuljen, which will be awarded on a first-come-first-served. It will say that the increase of the scrapping premium for 5000 dollars fall away, in the moment the pool is used. To the time the owner paid the general skrotpræmie of 2200 dollars.
The special pool is only open for a limited period and closes no later than 31. march 2020. Therefore, it applies to dieselbilsejerne to be fast.
the Pot was exhausted in a very short time, since it was open in 2019. The environmental protection agency expects that it's going to make itself felt again.
It is probably a matter of a few weeks, before the pool is used up, writes the environmental protection Agency.
In the auto business, Denmark do you call it 'wise' to raise the scrapping premium for older diesel cars, but at the same time believe that it is raised enough, or that the pot is 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, says Gitte Seeberg, adm. director in the auto industry in Denmark, in a press release.
If you, as a car owner to achieve the elevated skrotpræmie, the car must be older than 2006. 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.
The new pot is equivalent according to the environmental protection Agency to the payout for around 9000 diesel cars.
2019 was scrapped about 23,000 older diesel cars as a result of the scheme.
