Review of fuel quality report
Environment Australia, 2001
Coffey Geosciences Pty Ltd were commissioned by Environment Australia to undertake a Review of Fuel Quality Requirements for Australian Transport. The objectives included an assessment of the impact of changes to fuel specifications on Australian refineries, vehicle manufacturers and consumers. In order to achieve this objective, the development of scenarios for fuel quality included extensive consultation with stakeholders, and detailed consultation with the major stakeholders in the oil and motor vehicle industry.
Part 1 of this paper summarises the stakeholder consultation undertaken by the Coffey project team, including an outline of the issues discussed with the stakeholders and a discussion of the issues raised by the stakeholders. Part 2 of this paper describes the background to the scenario development process, and the rationale behind the development of the six scenarios for fuel quality. The scenarios developed are then outlined in detail.
