Registration Opens for 2017 No-Harm Test of Biodiesel Stabilizers

Submitted by on September 21, 2017 – 7:43 pmNo Comment

by Ron Kotrba (Biodiesel Magazine)  Germany’s biodiesel quality management association AGQM has opened registration for its latest round of no-harm tests on oxidation stabilizers for biodiesel.  

The European diesel fuel standard EN 590 allows up to 7 percent biodiesel to be blended in on-road diesel fuel. The biodiesel used must meet requirements laid out in the biodiesel fuel standard, EN 14214, which includes an oxidation stability requirement of eight hours in an accelerated test. Stabilizer additives are often used to achieve this.

The no-harm tests ensure these additives do not cause negative interactions with the fuels. This will be the 12th such no-harm test for biodiesel oxidation stabilizers used in on-road diesel fuel conducted by AGQM, in cooperation with the petroleum industry. AGQM also performs no-harm tests of stabilizers for biodiesel-blended heating oil.

All biodiesel stabilizers that have passed the two tests can be found in two no-harm lists on AGQM’s homepage.  READ MORE
