2 biodiesel antioxidants added to AGQM’s no-harm list

By Ron Kotrba | May 07, 2019

Germany’s biodiesel quality management association (AGQM) has successfully completed its 13th round of no-harm tests on oxidation stabilizers for biodiesel used in diesel fuel or heating oil.

In cooperation with the petroleum industry, AGQM has developed two test procedures to ensure a safe addition of antioxidants to biodiesel that exclude negative interactions between the fuel and additives. A B10 blend is used when testing antioxidants for mixture in diesel fuel, and B20 is used for testing antioxidants for biodiesel blends in heating oil.

Two additives successfully passed the no-harm test for biodiesel as a blend component in diesel fuel: SR 1529 by Dorf Ketal and AO 1202 by Rodanco. Dorf Ketal’s SR 1529 additive also passed the test for biodiesel blended with heating oil.

A list of all the products that have passed the tests, as well as a description of the test procedures, can be found on AGQM’s website.
