[The Hwankyung Ilbo] The Ministry of Environment said that it will expand the project to support 'liquefied petroleum gas (LPG) vehicles for children's schooling' to protect children's health from fine dust.

Starting from July last year, this project, which started with 800 vehicles in Seoul, has increased to 1,800 units this year and its scope has expanded nationwide.

The Ministry of Environment is supporting 5 million won per vehicle when an old diesel school bus that was registered before 2009 is converted into new LPG car of 15 seats or less.
