Are you aware of a list of countries still selling leaded gasoline that is more up-to-date than your 2007 web page? Do you know when Kenya stopped selling leaded gasoline?

Thanks

Dear Elizabeth

I have been very active in lead poisoning prevention in the Washington, DC area. I had been asked a question about childhood lead poisoning in Kenya by a colleague.

Thanks for your help

ANSWER: Aug 19 2009

Dear Jerome,

Our 2011 list of countries still selling leaded gasoline is the most up-to-date list and indeed the only list I know of online. See "Countries where Leaded Petrol is Possibly Still Sold for Road Use  [List of 6 countries in region, alphabetical and population order] As at 17th June 2011. Total Population Directly Affected: 194,770,689]" 

According to the United Nations Environment Program (UNEP) Partnership for Cleaner Fuels and Vehicles (PCFV) website, now on The LEAD group site  [http://www.lead.org.au/PCFV/PCFV_Lead_Matrix-SSA_200902.pdf] Kenya phased out leaded gasoline on 1st December 2005 (though the site has been known to contain errors on other country's phase out dates). Unfortunately, apart from trying your luck emailing the International Fuel Quality Center (IFQC) for a confirmation of the actual date in Kenya, the PCFV is really the only source of such information.

The last time I emailed IFQC three years ago, the appropriate contact person was:

Sandrine Dixson-Decleve,

International Fuel Quality Center (IFQC), Executive Director, Europe &

Africa, Brussels office

Phone +3226613080

I hope this helps.

I am interested to know the reason for your interest. Is your organisation keen to contribute to the end of leaded gasoline globally?

Yours Sincerely

Elizabeth O'Brien
