Iraq's Petroleum Research & Development Center (PRDC), part of the Iraqi Ministry of Oil, has successfully patented a new chemical to enhance the octane rating of gasoline.
Mr. Kareem Abd Al-Hassan Alwan, the director of PRDC, said that the chief chemist Mr. Zaidoon Khalaf Alsaaidi earned patent No. 3979 for the invention, which can improve the quality of petrol without reducing its performance in other ways.
