Fuel Oxygenates Web Site Links

Oxygenates in Water (EPA) - Identification of key issues related to assessing and managing the potential health and environmental risks of oxygenate contamination of water. Oxygenates are chemicals added to fuels (oxyfuels) to increase the oxygen content and thereby reduce emissions.

MTBE (methyl tertiary butyl ether) Information - U.S. EPA site about MTBE and releases from underground storage tank systems.

EPA Charnock MTBE Project - Case study about problem with MTBE (oxygenate fuel additive) in the Charnock groundwater sub-basin, which is an important source of drinking water for Santa Monica and Culver City, California.

MTBE Study - California Energy Commission study on methyl tertiary-butyl ether (MTBE).

U.S. EPA Blue Ribbon Panel for Reviewing the Use of MTBE and Other Oxygenates in Gasoline - Presentations heard by panel, panel report (1999), and related Internet links.

European Fuel Oxygenates Association - Extensive information on the benefits of oxygenates in gasoline, the role that MTBE plays in improving air quality, and health and environmental issues related to its use. Source is trade organization of MTBE producers.

Bibliography on MTBE and Water Quality - Searchable database of technical reference citations, by US Geological Survey.

Reformulated Gasoline - U.S. EPA collection of fact sheets, technical documents, computer models, data, Congressional testimony, and other materials about the reformulation of gasoline by adding MTBE, ethanol, or other oxygenates to reduce air pollution.

MTBE Resources - American Petroleum Institute compilation of online technical information on fuel oxygenates (primarily MTBE) in soil, groundwater and surface water. Includes both API-generated material and information from other sources.

MTBE Research at UC Davis - Includes an integrative review of the existing literature, assessment of available monitoring data, and original research performed by several University of California institutions.

Methyl Tertiary Butyl Ether - Fact sheet on the fate and transport of MTBE (from underground gasoline storage tanks) in groundwater.

National Debate About the Additive MTBE - Report on the effects of a likely change in U.S. policy on reformulated gasoline, specifically examining the results of an increased role for ethanol, and a decreased role for MTBE. From National Governors' Association.

MTBE Treatment Profiles - U.S. EPA compilation of studies and experiences with in situ and ex situ treatment of groundwater and drinking water contaminated with MTBE.
