Standing up for cleaner fuel
Fuel quality is becoming a growing customer priority both in terms of efficiency and emissions. It is particularly important where local infrastructure is weak.
The consistently high quality of our products has always been a key differentiator for our brand and customer value proposition. While regulations vary widely in different parts of the world, we exceed national quality specifications where ever possible and work with governments to improve national benchmarks in fuel quality, through advice, collaboration and investment. Better fuel means cleaner air, better quality of life, and greater efficiency and engine health.
Millions of people around the world rely on access to fuel to lead prosperous lives. Fuel boosts growth, but poor quality fuel has a negative impact on air quality. So how can we maintain the economic benefits, without harming our health? Cleaner fuel is a crucial part of the solution and we are committed to championing it.
At Puma Energy, we work with governments to help them raise fuel standards. We invest in the testing and infrastructure needed to deliver cleaner fuel over the long term. And we always provide the highest quality fuel possible – fuel that meets American Society for Testing Materials (ASTM) standards right along the value chain.
We use external testers and in some of our more remote locations we have laboratories on-site. What’s more, our continuous investment in clean fuel storage facilitates like tanks, pipes and loading bays is enabling a reliable supply of cleaner fuel to new markets.
The consistently high quality of our products has always been a key differentiator for our brand and customer value proposition. While regulations vary widely in different parts of the world, we exceed national quality specifications wherever possible and work with governments to improve national benchmarks in fuel quality through advice, collaboration and investment.
For example, we can now import clean fuels into the African continent thanks to a new state-of-the-art clean storage facility in Mozambique. At the same time, we are helping shape regulations across the continent through our involvement with the World Economic Forum’s cleaner fuel efforts, and by actively interacting with local governments and regulators. Across the Atlantic, in Puerto Rico, we’ve introduced Liquid Petroleum Gas (LPG) into power generation as a cleaner, safer fuel in homes and industries.
“Fuel composition is important because it affects emissions directly. If changed, it can have immediate impact on air quality and emissions, and it can enable or disable pollution control technology.” *

“Transitioning to cleaner fuel is no simple fix. It takes major investment – in storage facility upgrades, refinery conversions, and more. At Puma Energy we’re making these investments, working with governments to bring their infrastructure up to spec. Cleaner fuel standards worldwide won’t happen overnight, but we will get there.”
