OPPORTUNITY

Clean Engines will not run out of customers anytime soon. World population is expected to rise this century from 6 billion to between 9 and 11 billion. By 2025 Asia will have 10 ‘hypercities’ – urban areas with populations of more than 20 million. More than half of the world’s population will live in cities in Asia. Of the nine countries that will account for more than half of the population growth, four are in Asia – India, Pakistan, Bangladesh and China. Millions of additional vehicles – from motorcycles and cheap ‘one-lakh’ cars to buses and trucks – will further pollute already toxic environments. The contribution of motorcycles to air pollution is immense and unsustainable.

Many of the new vehicles will be comparatively cleaner than what is already on the road, but all new vehicles only add to the problem. The reality is that more than 100 million dirty 2-stroke vehicles will continue to pollute the air, cause disease and add to global climate change. A report on 2- and 3-wheelers from Clean Air Initiative-Asia and the United Nations Environment Programme estimates that there will be more than 550 million motorcycles on the road within 25 years, in a ‘business-as-usual’ scenario – an environmental and health disaster.

Clean Engines can help radically change the shape of the future.
