As part of the control activities carried out by the officials of the Sicily Regional Anti-Fraud Operating Group on the quality of fuels and the distribution chain, an association was identified dedicated to mixing diesel fuel with other hydrocarbon products not suitable for carburation.

ADM officials, with the support of the Agency’s mobile chemical laboratory and with the collaboration of the military of the Guardia di Finanza of Catania, during the course of a vast operation have identified some tankers used for the adulteration of the product and the subsequent delivery on road distribution systems located in the Agrigento area.

The verification activities allowed the seizure of about 60,000 liters of adulterated diesel, several tankers, an illegal fuel distribution system and the impediment of the delivery of non-compliant product by a road distributor.

The timely action of the operators and the use of the new technologies adopted by ADM with its chemical laboratories, has guaranteed the protection of consumers and the protection of the environment, preventing the release for consumption of the seized product and the reporting of three subjects to the Judicial Authority.
