This Thursday, the National Union of Fuel and Lubricant Distributors (Sindicom) donated to the State a mobile laboratory to reinforce the work of Operation De Olho na Bomba. The vehicle was delivered to the governor at the end of the morning, at the Bandeirantes Palace. For Alckmin, the new laboratory will enable an increase in inspection.

The executive vice president of Sindicom, Alísio Mendes Vaz, explained that the laboratory is equipped to also conduct the analysis of conductivity of alcohol, capable of identifying the addition of water to the product.

According to the technical director of metrology and quality at the State Weights and Measures Institute (Ipem), Oswaldo Alves Ferreira Júnior, with the laboratory it is possible to carry out fuel analyzes taken from 30 stations per day. As a matter of logistics, during De Olho na Bomba the vehicle is at a fixed point and receives the samples collected by technicians at the gas stations.

Alckmin pointed out that operations to curb the sale of adulterated fuel do not stop. ? Yesterday was in Presidente Prudente ?, he recalled. The fuels of about 30 gas stations in the region were analyzed.
