Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - July 20, 1973, Lethbridge, Alberta 12 THE IETHBRIDG6 HERALD Friday, July 20, 1973 Auto emission curbs tighter By JEFF CAJRRUTHERS Herald Ottawa Bureau OTTAWA Canada and the United States will part com- pany, starting with 1975 model cars, when it comes to anti-pol- lution regulations. Thursday, Transport Minister Jean Marchand and Environ- ment Minister Jack Davis an- nounced that Canada's automo- bile emisson standards for 1975 will be tougher than those now in effect, for 1973 and 1974 model cars. But the standards will not quite be as tough as the stand- ards planned for all of the United States, except Califor- nia, for 1975. The California standards for 1975 are even tougher. Ottawa is now aiming for a five per cent reduction in emis- sions in 1975, compared to 1973. And such a reduction will not require use cf catalytic con- that prom- ises to keep in the wallets of most Canadian car buyers in 1975. The reduction, federal offi- cials calculate, will also elimi- nate any further reduction in automobile performance or fuel that prom- ises additional savings in maintenance and gasoline costs for Canadian consumers, com- pared to car buyers south of the border. Environment Minister Davis explained Thursday ouside the Commons that the U.S. 1975 standards will require some manufacturers to use the ex- pensive and sensitive catalytic converters, especially on heav- ier model cars. The proposed 1975 standards for Canada will not require use of such catalytic converters, which cost about or more each and which are by gasoline containing lead anti-knock compounds. The proposed Canadian stand- ards "can be accomplished by the use of such devices as early fuel evaporation, electronic ig- nitions' and improved carbure- with "proven per- formance according to the government announce- ment. But Mr. Davis was quick to note that some Canadian con- sumers may end up with cars with the catalytic converters. That's a decision the auto mak- ers will be left with. Some car makers have indicated they may build the converters into the engines, making them more difficult to remove for Canadian customers. Residents fret about fate of sold clock WMNWRIGHT (CP) Resi- dents in this east-central Al- berta community are concern- ed about the fate of a large antique wall clock in the town's CNR station. The hand made gold clock, worth an estimated to is being sent to a per- son in Eastern Canada, says town secretary-treasurer Ernie Bouchard. Residents are writing to rail- way officials. Alberta Premier Peter Lougheed and Harry Kuntz, the member of parlia- ment for Battle River, in an effort to stop the move. The, Wainwright Historical Society says it asked CNR if it could acquire the clock for the town's museum, but the company rejected the request. Plants lose bids on air standards EDMONTON (CP) The Al- berta Energy Resources Con- servation Board has rejected two oil company applications Chat would have exempted three gas processing plants' from meeting 1975 air pollution standards. The board gave partial relief to a third application, from Gulf Oil Canada Ltd. on its Strachan plant northwest of Cal- gary. The applications that were rejected came from Hudson's Bay Oil and Gas Co. Ltd, for two plants near Fox Creek northwest of Edmonton, and Petrogas Processing Ltd., for its Crossfield plant north of Calgary.

Edmonton, Alberta T5JOKS Hudson's Bay asked to keep its sulphur recovery rate at 95 per cent, the standard set by the government when the plant was built in the late 1960s. The requirements effective Dec. 31, 1974, set the minimum recovery rate at 98 per cent for plants the size of those of Fox Creek. Increasing the recovery rate by two per cant would require a capital expenditure of 000 for equipment and annually in operating costs, the company said. Sulphur enters the processing plant with the sour-or sulphur- laden natural gas. If not removed, it is event- ually sent into the atmosphere as sulphur dioxide, a poison- ous gas. In denying the Hudson's Bay application, the board said in- creasing sulphur prices should help offset the additional costs and leave the sulphur recovery operation "marginally profit- able." Gulf Canada, which currently extracts 96 per cent of the sul- phur, was allowed to increase the rate to 97 per cent rather than 98 per cent. The board said a 98-per-cent rate would affect the econo- mics of the plant but a 97-per- cent rate would not make it lose money.
