This is the summary of proceedings for a two-day workshop on reformulated fuels held in Vancouver in 1994. The participants represented some of the most highly qualified people in the area of vehicle emissions. The Government of the Province of British Columbia is committed to the maintenance and enhancement of air quality in the province. As part of a wide range of initiatives to address air quality issues the Ministry of Environment, Lands and Parks has announced that it is reviewing all North American fuels and vehicles standards, including California's, as a basis for determining a solution appropriate for British Columbia. The purpose of the two round table meetings is to provide a forum in which stakeholders can provide information and comments on technical aspects of various fuel reformulations. It is hoped that the major technical points and issues can be identified through the presentation and discussion phase and carried forward to an open discussion and wrap-up at the end of each day. The results of the discussions will be important to the Ministry's assessment of the low sulphur diesel and reformulated gasoline issues leading ultimately to policy positions, voluntary initiatives, and if necessary, regulations.
