The share of biofuels in gasoline sold in Romania next year will drop with 0.5 % from 5% to 4.5 %, according to a draft government decision initiated by the Department of Energy, however manufacturers representatives consider that the Romanian is ready for the assortment of gasoline by 10 % biofuel.
This calendar although originally established in 2011 to provide that, next year, the share component of the bio diesel will increase to 6%. The next step in increasing its organic component is January 1, 2018, when compulsory share will be 8 %. Diesel , biodiesel share is currently around 5 % and will remain so until 1 January 2016 , when it reached 6.5%.
STOCK bio components to be mixed into gasoline and diesel fuel are higher than those such as decreased weight bioactive determine theoretically the reduction of the final price at the pump.
Currently, prices of biodiesel is about 1,360 dollars per ton, and the price of diesel is 950 dollars per ton. Regarding bioactive Quote gasoline , it is about 975 dollars per ton, while gasoline Quote is 960 dollars per ton.
In light of the 1 January 2014 implementation of the obligation to bring to market a biofuel content of petrol at least 6 % by volume (v / v ) have been reported a number of issues that can cause malfunctions in the fuel market ” shown in the note underlying the draft GD.
These failures include ” the existence of impediments of a technical nature found in using this type of fuel by vehicles in circulation, generally produced prior to 2000, the fleet structure is concerned but heterogeneous and differ according to each vehicle manufacturer. This is an objective situation whose harmful effects on consumers, fuel suppliers and vehicle manufacturers and importers should be reduced accordingly “
In the explanatory note reads that if would have jumped at the rate of 6% , oilmen would have to enter the market two types of gasoline, one for newer cars that allow such a weight of bioactive, and a type of gasoline for older cars.
Mention that the Community currently exist only three Member States ( France, Germany and Finland) that required the use of E10 gasoline type, economic circumstances and the nature of existing technology in these countries are much more favorable than in Romania. Should be noted that even in these states is maintained market availability and E5 petrol. Marketing by suppliers only gasoline containing at least 6 % biofuel will let vehicle owners whose function is not compatible with E10 without a viable alternative fuel supply, ” are among the arguments Department of Energy.
Level biodiesel would have to reach 6 % since the beginning of this year, but in the fall of 2012, oil companies have complained that they have not prepared the necessary infrastructure transition to new recipes, but they also expressed suspicion about any problems they would create motor cars older generation.
The Romanian market is ready for assortment of gasoline by 10 % ethanol
In Romania there are prerequisites for the market to show gasoline content of 10% ethanol ( E10 ) said Florentina Manea, advisor in the company Interagro.
Correlating last GD, which is spoken by at least 6 % of bioethanol, and given that there is a technical specification of petrol which allows us to go with an ethanol content of up to 10%, we believe in Romania prerequisites have been set to appear on the market that ‘s 10, that gasoline contain 10 % ethanol, “said Florentina Manea.
According to her, in Western Europe the petrol range commonly found on the market and in the Nordic countries, but also in Hungary, has already appeared on E85 (85 % bioethanol )
Manea added that annual decisions on changing the percentage of ethanol in gasoline producers have created problems related to production schedule or contracted amounts.
