Fuel traceability may be able to help us know what is in our fuel -- and whether it is sustainable. (Photo by Richard Forrest - BioenergyWiki user User:Admin).

Fuel traceability is crucial for consumers to be able to differentiate between different types of fuels, as well as different fuel producers. This is likely to be especially important for the promotion of sustainable biofuels production, so that distributors and consumers can identify and select sustainably produced fuels.


  • Biofuel Tracing with Tracero Taggants
    • "The TRACERCO™ F-Tag series developed for biodiesel and bioethanol are fully bespoke, organic molecules that fully mimic the behaviour of the fluid which is tagged, allowing its presence to be determined in petroleum based fuels (gasoline or diesel) down to a level of below +/-2%."[1]
