Review of fuel quality requirements for Australian transport

Environment Australia, March 2000


Volume 1

Volume 2

About this review

Coffey Geosciences Pty Ltd were commissioned by Environment Australia to undertake a review of possible new fuel specifications for Australia, designed to reduce emissions of greenhouse gases and air pollutants from Australian transport.

The development of the scenarios for new fuel specifications included extensive consultation with stakeholders, including the major stakeholders in the oil and motor vehicle industry. The impact of the new specifications on air pollutants and greenhouse emissions were assessed, along with the impact on Australian refineries, vehicle manufacturers, consumers and the economy wide effects of changing fuel specifications for petrol and diesel.

This report presents the results of the review.
