China's Shenhua, Datong Group aim to reverse slide in coal exports

Following a continued review of recognized additives contained in the FOB Singapore gasoil assessment process, S&P Global Platts proposes to begin reflecting a new additive.

The additive is cold flow improver R210 by Infineum.

Platts proposes to add this additive to the list of recognized additives reflected in its assessment process.

The list of Platts gasoil recognized additives is intended to provide clarity to market participants regarding which additives are generally considered to be merchantable and accepted for cargoes delivered through the Platts Market on Close assessment process in Singapore.

Platts does not align its FOB Singapore additives acceptance to any particular importing country.

For the full list of previously identified additives, please see The list of identified additives is not exhaustive and Platts continuously updates the list after an additive review is completed.
