Costa Rica News – This ought to work well since Recope is doing such a great job with gasoline right now….. (Sarcasm)
Recope is the Costa Rican Petroleum Refinery. It currently is under legislation stating that it can only work with hydrocarbons.
A law numbered 6,588, issued in 1981, prohibits the importation of other substances.
A modified version of the law will be presented to Congress with the intention of moving towards clean energy.
A roundtable on transportation and fuel is creating the new National Energy Plan. The draft should be ready in a week and implemented by December.
Recope’s fuel quality is excellent but the emission of greenhouse gases is deteriorating the air to a critical level in terms of public health so some changes must be made.
The roundtable is discussing clean transport, energy efficiency and alternative fuels and energy.
