Two antioxidants passed AGQM No-Harm Test
Successful completion of this year’s no-harm test round for oxidation stabilisers for biodiesel used in diesel fuel or heating oil.
Association Quality Management Biodiesel (AGQM) in cooperation with the mineral oil industry has developed two demanding test procedures to ensure a safe addition of antioxidants to biodiesel. When using additives, special care must be taken to ensure that negative interactions with the fuel and its additives are excluded.
In the additive test procedure for biodiesel as blend component in diesel fuel a B10 blend is used for the examinations. In the thirteenth round of these demanding no-harm tests, two additives could be included in the no-harm list: SR 1529 (Dorf Ketal B.V.) and AO 1202 (Rodanco BV).
For the examinations of antioxidants for biodiesel for the use in heating oil, the tests are carried out in a B20 fuel. The additive SR 1529 (Dorf Ketal B.V.) also successfully passed this test.
A description of the no-harm tests as well as the lists of all products that passed the tests successfully can be found on AGQM’s website. Information about the next test round for oxidation stabilisers can be requested under email@example.com.
