Petrobras informs that it is already producing at all of its refineries and selling to distributors gasoline with RON 93 octane rating, which will only be mandatory in Brazil in 2022, according to the new regulations of the National Agency of Petroleum, Natural Gas and Biofuels (ANP) - ANP Resolution 807/20.

The ANP Resolution 807/20, whose first phase will come into force on 08/03/2020, establishes a minimum octane rating of 92 by the RON (Research Octane Number) methodology, already adopted in Europe and more appropriate to the new engine technologies being introduced in Brazil. This resolution also establishes a minimum density of 715 kg/m, which means more efficiency, with the possibility of reducing gasoline consumption per kilometer by 5% on average, in addition to making it more difficult to cheat in its formulation, combating the use of low quality solvents and naphthas in the adulteration of the product sold to the consumer.

In the second phase, scheduled for January 2022, minimum octane rating RON 93 will be adopted. The company has already anticipated the production of gasoline with superior quality standards, guaranteeing the consumer a product with better performance and efficiency.
