AGQM, FAM announce 2012 biodiesel round robin tests

By AGQM | March 27, 2012

The Association Quality Management Biodiesel (AGQM) is once again organizing a round robin test for biodiesel and rapeseed oil fuel in cooperation with the Fachausschuss für Mineralöl- und Brennstoffnormung (FAM).

The analysis of components and the final product forms a major part of the quality assurance of fuels. Therefore reliable monitoring and testing of the product properties of biodiesel and rapeseed oil fuel is an essential aspect of its quality management. The participation in round robin tests is thereby an important instrument for laboratories to control and improve the standard obtained.

Since 2008, AGQM and FAM (Fachausschuss für Mineralöl- und Brennstoffnormung im DIN/ Mineral Oil and Fuels Standardization Committee within DIN) conduct their annual international round robin test for biodiesel and rapeseed oil fuel. All interested laboratories (at company sites, contractors, research) dealing with the analysis of biodiesel and rapeseed oil fuel are invited to participate again this year.

In 2011, a total of 70 laboratories from Germany, Europe, South America and Asia took part, which makes the AGQM/FAM round robin test the largest regular event of its kind worldwide.

Interested persons can register by April 27 here. More information about the round robin test are available on AGQM’s homepage or can be requested by email.

Both nationally and internationally, AGQM offers a concept of measures for the quality assurance of biodiesel, which comprises the entire production and marketing chain. The association is involved in research projects for most diverse application options of biodiesel and its byproducts.
