Costa Rica trying to implement E8 by June after nine failed attempts

January 22, 2020 |

In Costa Rica, local press reports that the government is going to try again to introduce 8% ethanol blending starting in June after nine failed attempts. The state-owned oil distributor Refinadora Costarricense de Petróleo (Recope) said in its 2020 budget that it is investing in three 10,000 barrel storage tanks for ethanol in addition to more gasoline storage. It is also budgeting nearly $8.9 million to tackle any possible customer claims resulting from the blend, a third more than it has budgeted for additional fuel storage.
