NanoTag catches diesel ‘thieves’
The NanoTag system has succeeded in stopping diesel cheats. More than 640,000 litres of subsidised diesel worth almost a million ringgit have been confiscated, thanks to nanotechnology.
The Domestic Trade and Consumer Affairs Ministry was confident that diesel it found in several factories, transport companies, construction sites and quarries, diesel wholesalers and hardware companies was subsidised fuel.
