SINGAPORE (Reuters) - Singapore will move towards cleaner fuel and reduce sulphur emissions from cars and industries by 2014 in a bid to keep up with global changes, the country's National Environment Agency said.

As the number of vehicles in the world grows, boosted by surging numbers in Asia, several nations have stepped up the adoption of standards to cap sulphur emissions in recent years, including China, India and Thailand.

With the new directive, Singapore will be on par in terms of sulphur standards with Japan, South Korea and Australia for diesel but still lag these countries for gasoline.
