Dear customer,

As a result of the ongoing pandemic, our distributors are working at reduced capacity. Please be aware that this may introduce some delays to the delivery of hard copy orders.

This joint Energy Institute/Downstream Fuel Association research report provides the findings of a review undertaken by Intertek CAPCIS on the compatibility of materials found in fuel distribution systems (in particular fuel-wetted components at petroleum distribution terminals, on road tankers and at filling stations) with ethanol and ethanol/gasoline blends.

It provides an assessment of the suitability of certain materials for use with gasoline/ethanol blends (both liquid and vapour). The report also defines suitable acceptance criteria that are relevant for this application and a framework for assessing and potentially testing the suitability and compatibility of other materials.

This publication will be of interest to all operators within ethanol/gasoline supply chains, as well as component and equipment suppliers.
