was published by the International Center( hereinafter - MC) on Fuel Quality Supervision( the full name of the organization in English - The International Fuel Quality Center, abbreviated - IFQC) rating of gasoline quality in 100 countries of the world , based on the sulfur content in it. For reference: the above MC appeared in 1998 as a branch of Hart Energy Publishing LLP.This information company in the energy sector is now one of the largest in the world. IFQC is a service that specializes in collecting analytical data on the quality of transport fuel.

Sulfur is a natural component of oil. Due to incomplete purification of raw materials, it remains in transport fuel. When gasoline burns, sulfur enters the air. Sulfur compounds have a harmful effect on human health, the environment. Thanks to the purification of gasoline, it is possible to significantly reduce the emission of sulfur, nitrogen oxides, carbon, make the engine work longer and more efficient.
