Fuel Quality Strategies Training Manual -- Module 3
Fuel Quality Strategy Training Workshop, 25 Oct to 1 Nov 2003, Sydney, Australia

This Module focuses on the impact of pricing, competition and market regulation on the successful implementation of fuel quality policies. It shows how countries with market and pricing constraints have more difficulties in switching over to cleaner fuels versus countries without these constraints. Economic and other policy issues to consider in developing fuel strategies including the use of tax differentiation and economic instruments to promote the use and facilitate the penetration of cleaner fuels and refinery modification are also discussed. Case studies from outside Asia and one or two from within Asia are included.
