I would like to express my support for use of Raman spectroscopic technology as a performance-based testing method for the determination of Octanes for motor gasoline fuel. I am the Raman spectroscopic specialist at the Chevron refinery in Burnaby, Canada, and am directly involved in data collection, modeling/calibration and validation of our Raman instruments, including one benchtop analyzer and one online analyzer used in our blender-header to measure and control our gasoline blends in real-time. Thank you for your consideration.
