The Subcommittee of Experts of the National Diesel Forum of Germany will return so-called selective devices for selective catalytic reduction to reduce emissions of nitrogen oxides (NOx), the newspaper said in an excerpt from an article that will be published on Sunday, provided by Reuters on Saturday.

Nevertheless, there is no consensus as to who will pay the modernization bill, which can cost 3,000 euros or more per car, the document says.

He cited the government spokesman as confirming the plan for Chancellor Angela Merkel to take action on measures to reduce NOx emissions this month.

Last week, the court ruled that Frankfurt, the financial center of Germany, would have to ban environmentally friendly older diesel cars from the city center from next February as part of an air quality improvement plan.
The city of Hamburg this year voluntarily blocked the old diesel models from using the selected main roads. Other cities, including Aachen, Dusseldorf and Stuttgart, where Daimler (DAIGn.DE) and Porsche (VOWG_p.DE) live, are also considering bans.

The discussion about air quality was caused by reports of persistent high NOx emissions in the largest cities in Germany and the admission of Volkswagen in 2015 to falsify the testing of diesel emissions in the US using engine control devices.
