Government to implement stricter anti-smoke belching program

Smoke Belching Prevention Program (SBPP) will be promoted by the Department of Environment and Natural Resources—Environment Management Bureau (DENR-EMB) to different communities in order to aid in the improvement of the quality of the Philippines and the reduction of pollution in air.

Starting early this year, SBPP will do its best with the help of the Department of Transportation and Communication (DoTC), Department of Energy (DoE), and the Land Transportation Office (LTO).

Through SBPP, the public in general will have the power to report smoke belchers by means of SMS. Smoke belchers are those who own vehicles that are already prohibited by concerned agencies due to the emission of too much smoke.
