April 4, 2019 |

In Costa Rica, as a contribution to the process of decarbonization of the economy, at the end of May RECOPE will make available to the market a new gasoline that initially will contain 8% ethanol in its formulation, although the standard allows adding between 5% and 10%; In this way, an oxygenating agent is added that contributes to reduce CO2 emissions, which will result in an improvement for public health and environmental protection.

Between the changes it emphasizes that it will be a colorless fuel, since no dye will be put to him; and it will be called ECO95, in reference to its contribution to air quality and octane number, a specification that defines the fuel’s anti-knock characteristic.
