Fuel marking technology

Tracerco fuel testing platforms

Tracerco has developed a number of layered platforms to offer a wide range of options for the detection of illegal fuel practices in a variety of scenarios.

Quantitative and qualitative technologies are available – either field portable or laboratory based. Gold standard forensic methods of analysis can also be employed.

Only environmentally acceptable markers that contain carbon, hydrogen, oxygen and nitrogen (CHON) are used.
