“I am really pleased to take up this position as I believe that much still needs to be done with regards to the decarbonisation of transport. Clean, efficient and high quality fuels, such as fuel ethers, play an essential role in decreasing emissions from transport. Harvesting the CO2 reduction potential offered by high quality fuels is a much needed, cost-effective and environmentally friendly solution, which also brings benefit European consumers, offering them a more efficient product. I very much look forward to working with the European stakeholders on this important topic.” said Ewa.
Ewa’s appointment coincides with the publication of a new leaflet that includes infographics explaining in a visually appealing way the positive impact high performing /high octane fuels can have on our everyday life.
