The two agreements that were stipulated in China for cutting down polluting emissions give Pirelli a strategy opportunity to launch its particle filters. The Italian Ministry of Territorial Protection, Water and Environment and the Ministry of Environmental Protection of China, in the presence of the Italian Minister, Stefania Prestigiacomo, the Chinese authorities and the CEO of the Pirelli Group, Marco Tronchetti Provera, signed a memorandum of understanding, which plans the development of projects to launch filtration systems for cutting down emissions of diesel powered vehicles already in circulation (‘retrofit‘); the memorandum also includes the installation of advanced technologies, like Pirelli technologies that passed the tests conducted in 2008. The agreement concerns five provinces selected by the Chinese government in order to adopt restrictive measures for prohibiting the circulation of polluting vehicles, including the province of Shandong wherein Pirelli’s pneumatic production sites are located; furthermore the agreement is implemented in the environmental cooperation programme that was signed by the two ministers in the year 2000. The second agreement involves the Italian Ministry of Territorial Protection, Water and Environment, the Municipality of  Beijing and Pirelli Eco Technology, and concerns the installation of a significant number of samples of Pirelli’s filtration systems for the buses of Peking. The agreement concludes the testing started in 2008, which led to the type-approval of Pirelli’s filters thanks to their distinctive technological features.
