ETBE as a Gasoline Blending Component: The Experience of Elf Aquitaine 941860

This study, lead by Elf AQUITAINE for several years, shows the possibility to use ETBE instead of MTBE as a gasoline component and compares properties of these two ethers regarding different parameters like octanes, volatility, engine cleanliness, stability of the ethers themselves and of gasoline blends, lubricant compatibility and toxicological data.
ETBE appears at least as good as MTBE and sometimes better, as ETBE is chemically more similar to hydrocarbons than MTBE and can be used avantageously as a gasoline oxygenated component.
