Decree To Restrict Amount Of Fuel Additives Under Review
News: The Costa Rican government is pushing for a decree that proposes restrictions on the amount of certain substances permissible in petrol. The decree, which is currently under review, would regulate the presence of aromatics, benzene, manganese, iron and phosphorus, as well as other additives. The move has led to the resumption of a conflict with distributors of fuel additives. The government has emphasised that the decree aims to safeguard human health. However, the industry has claimed that the products have been tested based on international standards and are harmless.
