Starting from January 2011, the Moscow Refinery launched the production of diesel fuel for domestic supplies that meets the requirements of Class 4 Technical Regulations. The operations support for production of diesel fuel with sulphur content up to 50 mg/kg included Haldor Topsoe catalyst loading into the hydrotreatment unit.
Usage of Euro-4 diesel fuel in automobiles substantially increases the lifetime of engines, enhances the technical specifications of vehicles, and enables reduction of vehicle emissions.
"Start of production of the diesel fuel for domestic supplies that meets the requirements of Class 4 Technical Regulations at the Moscow Refinery is the first step towards implementation of the target for improvement in the quality of the Refinery's production. Besides, we see it a significant contribution into the ecological development of Moscow and the region as a whole", - Deputy CEO for Logistics, Processing and Sales of Gazprom Neft Anatoly Cherner stated.
