A new labeling of fuels has been rolled out In the European Union countries. This new system is valid from October 12, according to a press release by the European Commission.
Gasoline is indicated by the letter “E” inside the circle: E5, E10, etc. (the number indicates the amount of ethanol in the fuel). Diesel fuel is indicated by the letter “B” inside the square: B7, B10, XTL, etc. The figure is the fraction of biodiesel blended with diesel from crude oil. XTL diesel is completely synthetic diesel fuel obtained from non-crude oil. Winter fuel is indicated by the index B0 with snowflakes. Gaseous fuels are denoted as a diamond, inside which are placed the CNG (compressed natural gas), LNG (liquefied natural gas) indices, LPG (liquefied petroleum gas) and H2 (hydrogen) indices.
This new system was created to recognize the growing supply of non-crude oil produced synthetic fuels. INFRA.xtl GTL units produce light synthetic oil that easily mixes and can be transported with mineral oil. Its premium synthetic fuels correspond to the highest ecological requirements with minimum emissions compared to fossil fuels.
