Oil importer companies in Georgia have proposed to mark fueling stations additionally to Eco Marking.
The business sector has no remarks concerning the voluntary marking of fuel, but the regulations should be further tightened, Vano Mtvralashvili, head of the union of oil importers of Georgia, told the Business Contact.
Companies may import high-quality fuel products, but the fueling stations may fail to satisfy eco standards and other requirements. There are also several questionable issues about how the fuel quality will be controlled in the course of time, Vano Mtvralashvili said.
“The business sector demands for further tightening of the process. The business backs this project unconditionally and the business sector is one of the initiators of the fuel quality project.
At the same time, there are various problems. The fueling stations may fail to satisfy many components in terms of ecology and obtain “Green Mark” anyway. This Green Mark is very important in terms of marketing.
There is one problem. The fueling station may fail all parameters, but issue this mark anyway. It is also unclear how the product quality will be controlled. The fueling station may buy this fuel once and it is unclear who will control it at the next stage”, Vano Mtvralashvili noted.
We remind you that at the first stage automobile fuel products (petrol, diesel) will be marked with the aim to increase the volume of ecologically clean fuel in the market and promote healthy competition between oil importer companies.
