In line with EU regulations and market demands, producers must further reduce emission resulting from the use of their products in vehicles, especially the quantity of gases responsible for the greenhouse effect (primarily CO2). This implies specific changes in the composition and properties of fuels in parallel with improvements in the evolution of engine construction.
To strengthen our regional position we continued the launch of bio-component blended fuels in our main markets. Hungarian market introduction of diesel containing bio-diesel took place in the year 2008, while gasoline containing ethanol has been marketed since 2007. Slovnaft introduced B5 to the Slovak market in 2005; E5 (only ETBE) in 2006 and in 2011 direct ethanol blended gasoline.
MOL Group continuously investigating different possibilities to further enhance greenhouse-gas saving attributes of blended biocomponents. To achieve this, we established partnerships with a number of international companies and research institutes. Detailed economic analysis of the most promising innovation routes will be performed before the start of the implementation.
The renewed MOL XXL Diesel fuel was optimize to increase the fuel economy (up to 2-4%) primarily in heavy duty vehicles and the use of XXL Diesel results lower CO2 emission thanks to the improved fuel composition and special additivization.
Non-fuel products also undergo continuous quality improvements to meet ever-evolving market demand and regulatory requirements. In 2015, successful rubber modified bitumen test runs and experimental road construction (Hungary and Slovakia) proved the efficiency and applicability of the technology.
Communication started with local governments to facilitate the rubber modified bitumen market introduction.
Cleaner fuels contribute significantly to the protection of the environment and of our health. Therefore, MOL Group makes every effort to produce fuels with reduced harmful emissions and higher renewable content.
Developments in gasoline quality are driven by ever-increasing efforts to protect the environment. In line with legal regulations, motor vehicle manufacturers are expected to further reduce vehicle emissions, especially the quantity of emitted gases responsible for the greenhouse-gas effect (primarily carbon-dioxide) step-by-step.
Gas Oils (Diesel)
Developments in diesel engine fuel quality are driven by ever-increasing efforts to protect the environment. In line with legal regulations, motor vehicle manufacturers are expected to further reduce vehicle emissions, especially the quantity of emitted gases responsible for the greenhouse-gas effect (primarily carbon-dioxide) step-by-step.
Autogas (LPG) is designed specifically for motor vehicles which are converted to gas fuel usage by closely-monitored special equipment. In addition to derived environmental benefits, LPG represents an intelligent use of energy resources.
