India beats deadline with clean-fuel step

By OGJ editors
HOUSTON, Sept. 23
-- India has completed its transition to Euro III-like gasoline and diesel specifications outside its 13 largest cities.

Completion of the step occurred ahead of an Oct. 1 deadline, Jitin Prasada, minister of state for petroleum, said in New Delhi.

The country introduced fuels meeting tougher standards, called Bharat Stage IV, in the large cities last April.

Among other requirements, India’s Bharat Stage III standards, adapted from Euro III fuels, cap sulfur content at 150 ppm for gasoline and 350 ppm for diesel. Bharat Stage IV, corresponding to Euro IV fuels, caps sulfur at 50 ppm for both fuels.
