Setting a Fuel Quality Standard for Fuel Ethanol

International Fuel Quality Center
Report to Department of the Environment and Heritage
December 2004


About the document

The Department of the Environment and Heritage commissioned the International Fuel Quality Center (IFQC) to prepare a technical paper on the quality and characteristics of fuel ethanol around the world. This was not a position paper. The views and opinions expressed in this publication do not necessarily reflect those of the Australian Government or the Minister for the Environment and Heritage.

In December 2004, the Minister for the Environment and Heritage, the Hon Ian Campbell MP released this technical paper to assist in public discussion on setting an Australian quality standard for fuel ethanol.
