4 biodiesel stabilizers added to AGQM's no-harm list

By Ron Kotrba | July 05, 2017

The German biodiesel quality management association AGQM has added four biodiesel oxidation stabilizers to its no-harm list of additives, following completion of the organization’s 11th no-harm test round. The four antioxidants added to the list are Xtendra BL100 and BL200 (CFS do Brasil), Baynox Ultra (Lanxess Deutschland GmbH), and Pachem-BL (Pachemtech sp z o.o.).

Antioxidants are added to B100 to help achieve the required stability of eight hours in an accelerated procedure used in standards testing. The no-harm test was developed by AGQM in cooperation with the petroleum industry to ensure no negative interactions between the stabilizer additives in biodiesel and the petroleum diesel, engine oil and other additives used.  

Now, a total of 51 antioxidant additives from 28 manufacturers have passed AGQM’s no-harm test. A list of all the products can be found on AGQM’s homepage.
