Georgia, Tbilisi, Dec. 1 / Trend N.Kirtzkhalia /
The State Oil Company of the Azerbaijan Republic's (SOCAR) fuel meets Georgian standards.
The Union of Oil-Product Producers, Importers and Consumers said this week that SOCAR Georgia fuel meets the country's legal standards, and this was confirmed by quality monitoring at gas stations.
According to Union Chairman Vano Mtvralashvili, SOCAR provided fuel samples to the union under an agreement from three gas stations in Tbilisi. Four fuel components were tested - octane in gasoline, lead concentration, and aromatics and sulfur percentage.
The analysis showed that SOCAR fuel meets all four standards, he said.
"Environmental organizations repeatedly said the fuel composes gasoline that is harmful to human health and the environment. The union states that the gasoline content is within the accepted norms," the chairman said.
Mtvralashvili believes the quality of Azerbaijani gasoline in recent years has improved significantly and is approaching European standards.
