Petrolab Co. announced it has upgraded its IROX diesel fuel analyzer to determine the biodiesel content in diesel fuel. The portable IROX diesel FTIR analyzer, produced by Grabner Instruments, features a compact mid-FTIR spectrometer.
The IROX analyzer measures the complete absorption spectrum, which provides complete analysis of the substances present in the diesel fuel. The technology also analyzes cetane improver, total aromatics, poly nuclear aromatics and density of the fuel. The unit is ideal for laboratory and on-site analyses of diesel fuels, according to the company.

The American Soybean Association (ASA) board of directors recently elected officers at a meeting in Washington, D.C. Bob Metz of West Browns Valley, S.D., is now president while Neal Bredehoeft of Alma, Mo., is serving as chairman. Richard Ostlie of Northwood, N.D., was elected as first vice president, which puts him in line to become ASA president next year. Bob Rikli of Murdock, Neb., was elected secretary, and Gary Joachim of Claremont, Minn., is now treasurer. Elected vice presidents include: Johnny Dodson of Dyersburg, Tenn.; John Hoffman of Waterloo, Iowa; Dennis Jaeger of Goodwin, S.D.;
