The Problem

“The battle for climate change will be won or lost in Asia’s cities.”
Rachel Kyte | VP for Sustainable Development, World Bank

Dirty air sickens and kills, causing uncounted millions of cases of asthma, chronic and acute respiratory disease and millions of premature deaths every year. The Global Burden of Disease Study 2010 reveals that China and India alone suffer 1.8 million early deaths from air pollution. The same study estimates that pollution costs China 25 million healthy years of life. Dirty air is not only a personal killer, but also a drag economic growth through loss of productivity. This pollution is man-made, and much of it comes from the exhaust pipes of the 2-stroke and 4-stroke engines that power the two and three wheeled vehicles variously called auto rickshaws, tricycles or tuk-tuks.

Polluting motorcycles are the sole means of economic support and/or transportation for millions of poor people, and governments are politically and ethically disinclined to pass new regulations – or enforce those already on the books – that destroy livelihoods of the poor. We offer a fundamentally different, private sector approach. Clean Engines International Holdings Pte. Ltd. (CEI) changes the political and economic calculus by creating ‘shared value’ – making a profit while delivering significant environmental and health benefits to its customers and to society at large without government subsidy – all while providing an effective, affordable solution that actually increases a driver’s income.
