Bangchak Retails “Dust Reducing Fuel” for 3rd Consecutive Year The first Thai producer to address the PM 2.5 problem in Bangkok with same price low Sulphur Euro 5 Diesel since 2019
Bangchak first introduced Dust Reducing Fuel in 2019 by improving the quality of all diesel types in Bangkok to meet with the low Sulphur Euro 5 standard to reduce pollution from PM 2.5 dust particles, and will retail dust reducing fuel for the third consecutive year, from 15 November 2021 to 28 February 2022.
In an effort to prevent problems from the micro dust particles or PM 2.5, which grows in severity toward the end of the year, especially in the last 3 years, Bangchak will adjust the quality of diesel fuels in all Bangchak service stations in Bangkok to meet low Sulphur Euro 5 standards, with 5 times less Sulphur (less than 10 ppm) according to laboratory tests. The fuel will retail at the same price despite the increased production costs. The reduction of Sulphur in diesel help to reduce the problem of micro dust particles and Sulphur Dioxide, because the combustion of Sulphur creates sulphates that bind with other pollutants causing PM 2.5.
Furthermore, from 1 October 2021 to 28 February 2022, Bangchak customers can redeem their fuel receipts for 11 car checkup items for free, and receive advice on engine maintenance to prevent combustion fumes which causes PM 2.5.
Bangchak Refinery is a modern Complex Refinery with a daily production capacity of 120,000 barrels, capable of producing high-value gasoline and diesel products according to state Euro 4 standards. Additionally, it is the first Asian refinery to produce environmentally-friendly Euro 5 Gasohol E20. Presently Bangchak Euro 5 products include, Bangchak Gasohol E20S and Bangchak Premium Diesel S, both fuels not only helping engines to combust more efficiently and maximize engine potential, but also help the environment through its Euro 5 standard as well.
