Petrobras to Use Biodiesel Additive from International Fuel

June 22 (Bloomberg) -- Petroleo Brasileiro SA, Brazil’s state-run oil company, will use a fuel additive from International Fuel Technology Inc. to improve the chemical composition of biodiesel.

International Fuel’s PerfoLift BD-4 provides oxidation stability and controls the formation of deposits in biodiesel blends, the Saint Louis, Missouri-based company said today in a statement. The value of the contract wasn’t disclosed.

Petrobras will use the additive at its three biodiesel plants, which can manufacture at total of 150 million liters (39.6 million gallons) of fuel a year.
