Ryazan Oil Refining Company (RORC), the largest refining asset of Rosneft, has produced in excess of 1 million tonnes of environmentally-friendly Euro 6 gasoline, according to Neftegaz.

The refined products from the refinery are delivered to Moscow, Ryazan, Tula, Kaluga, and Krasnodar Regions.

The mass-production of this fuel is possible due to the recent upgrades at the RORC in 2019. The plant’s catalytic reforming unit was upgraded and the volume of the commodity storage of the enterprise was increased. Also, new production technology has been developed and the more stringent requirements for six key indicators were set.

The Euro 6 motor fuel is a form of gasoline that has fewer environmental consequences when burned in comparison to common fuels. In terms of the environmental benefits, the fuel contains less sulfur, benzene, and aromatic hydrocarbons that help mitigate corrosion activity and reduces the toxicity of exhaust fumes by 30%.
