The level of the hazardous elements in gasoline in Iran complies with quantity set by the European Union emission standards, spokesman of the National Iranian Oil Products Distribution Company said.
"The quantity of aromatic compounds and benzene are 35% and 1% respectively—the same levels set by the EU," Mahdi Esmaeli was quoted as saying by ILNA.
The average sulfur content in gasoline is around 40 part per million (PPM). Last summer the figure was 180 PPM, he added, noting that levels of aromatic hydrocarbons are regularly checked in refineries and NIOPDC’s laboratories.
