About the review

A contract has now been let for a review of fuel quality requirements in Australia. The study is to be carried out by Coffey Geosciences Pty Ltd over the next 12 months and will include wide consultation with key stakeholder groups. The scope and rationale for the work is covered in more detail below.

The study is one of the 'Clear the Air Projects' which are the Government’s first stage response to the Inquiry into Urban Air Pollution carried out by the Academy of Technological Sciences and Engineering in 1997.

The study is funded under the Natural Heritage Trust Fund and is managed by Environment Australia in close cooperation with the Australian Greenhouse Office, Federal Office of Road Safety and the Department of Industry Science and Resources.
