Start of the Round Robin Tests for Biodiesel and Vegetable & Used Cooking Oils

Registration for the round robin tests of the Arbeitsgemeinschaft Qualitätsmanagement Biodiesel e.V. (AGQM). (AGQM) is possible until 25 February 2022.

In cooperation with the Technical Committee for Mineral Oil and Fuel Standardization (FAM) in DIN, AGQM offers the world’s only round robin tests for Biodiesel (fatty acid methyl ester, FAME) and Vegetable & Used Cooking Oils. In the round robin test FAME part 1, all parameters of the biodiesel standard EN 14214 (those listed in the German 36th BImSchV) are queried. In the other round robin tests FAME part 2 and part 3, additional parameters such as the methanol content or pour point are examined. For the first time, the parameter saturated monoglycerides is offered, which will be important in the future. The independent round robin test Vegetable & Used Cooking Oils addresses the analysis of oils (DIN 51623 and EN 14214), which is used, for example, for incoming goods inspection.

"The analysis of all components used and produced represents an essential part of quality assurance. Participation in round robin tests is therefore an important tool for laboratories to check and improve their own measurement performance," says Katharina Friedrich, quality manager at AGQM Biodiesel.

In the round robin tests that are offered, the participating laboratories have the opportunity to compare their measurement competence with more than 50 international participants. After the round robin tests have been carried out, each participant receives an anonymized evaluation report and a certificate as proof of their own measurement competence.

The registration for the round robin tests is still possible until 25th February 2022 at http://rrt.agqm-biodiesel.com.
