Being an environmentally responsible entity, Rosneft carries on improving the production of innovative petroleum-based products. The production and sales of RON-95-K5 Euro 6 gasoline is the company’s contribution to environment protection.
The Euro 6 motor fuel contains significantly less sulphur (by 20-40%), benzol (no more than 0.8%), and aromatic hydrocarbons (no more than 32%) that reduces the toxicity of exhaust fumes. The use of Euro 6 gasoline makes it possible to reduce the number of deposits in induction valves by 12.5% and the number of deposits in the engine compression chamber by 12.7%.
In 2018, the company was the 1st in Russia to start producing and selling Euro 6 gasoline with enhanced environmental properties. Euro 6 gasoline is currently sold at 578 of the company’s gas stations in Bashkiria, Krasnodar Territory, Tula, Kaluga, and Ryazan Regions, as well as by small wholesale.
Due to large-scale modernization of the refineries and changes in fuel production technology, including the blend composition, the company was able to develop a unique production algorithm, which allowed not only to significantly enhance environmental properties of the gasoline but also to do so without compromising production costs.
Euro 6 gasoline will be supplied to Moscow Region mainly by Rosneft’s Ryazan Oil Refining. At present, the production of RON-95-K5 Euro 6 has been set up at the Ufa group’s plants and Saratov refinery.
