3 new antioxidant additives included on AGQM’s no-harm lists

By AGQM | June 06, 2018

The current no-harm test round for antioxidants for biodiesel blended with diesel fuel or heating oil has been successfully completed.  

Antioxidants are usually added to biodiesel to improve the oxidation stability. Germany’s biodiesel quality management association (AGQM), in cooperation with the fossil oil industry, has developed two demanding test procedures to ensure a safe addition of additives 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 demanding test procedure for biodiesel used in diesel fuel, a B10 blend is used for the examinations. In the 12th round of the so-called no-harm tests, two additives passed the test for inclusion in the no-harm list: DBM AO217 IMP (Baker Hughes (Nederland) BV) and OXIBIOL (EcosMetique S.L.).

For biodiesel in heating oil, the tests are carried out in a B20 fuel. In this year's test round, one additive successfully passed the test: IFO-6hD (IFO Agro LLC).

The list of all products that passed the test successfully can be found on AGQM’s website. The test report, including all products tested so far, can also be ordered there.

Information on the next test round, which will likely start this fall, can be requested under [email protected].
