AGQM hosts 6th Int'l Conference on Biodiesel: A Fuel on the Move
The Association of Quality Management Biodiesel (Arbeitsgemeinschaft Qualitaetsmanagement Biodiesel e.V., AGQM) will host its 6th International Conference on Biodiesel in Berlin May7-8. One session of the conference will deal in particular with the increasing requirements biodiesel must fulfill both as pure fuel or blend component regarding emissions, performance, material durability and wear as well as increased fuel mileage. Thus biodiesel must bear up to an environment with demands for ever-increasing requirements concerning its quality.
Beside the controversial debate on quota politics and the submission of sustainability documentation for biofuels, the conference also intends to bridge political and economic framework and engine technology.
As part of a conference session on engine-related aspects of biodiesel, research results of tests on long-term stability and combustion behavior of biodiesel in modern diesel engines will be presented by means of the exemplary Range Extender Motor Steyr Motors released for pure biodiesel fuel; also, Continental’s latest fuel sensor will be introduced.
The conference addresses representatives of industry and associations, authorities, laboratories, scientific institutes and interested individuals who are all invited to exchange information and have fruitful discussions. The conference will be held in both German and English; all speeches will be translated simultaneously.
Registrations by 14 March will receive an early-bird bonus.
