Counter fuel laundering and fuel adulteration using non-launderable markers
Fuel adulteration, laundering and smuggling combine to create a global problem for governments around the world. Not only does it pose a burden to the environment, it also deprives them of hundreds of millions of dollars in taxation revenues.
The cost in terms of policing, dismantling discovered plants, clean-up operations and the safe disposal of dumped toxic sludge – a by-product from such illegal operations – is also considerable.
In its latest blog, Tracerco explains how a tailored fuel marking program using non-launderable markers can address issues related to fuel quality, fuel subsidy abuse, fuel brand abuse and tax revenue losses.
