APPLICATIONS > OIL & GAS > BIODIESEL
Biodiesel, as an alternative to petroleum-diesel fuel, is receiving worldwide attention. The biofuel is mainly obtained from oil crops, such as rapeseed, palm, soybean, and sunflower, although waste oils from cooking and animal fats can also be used.
Origin and quality level of the fuel sample have to be continuously monitored for its best characterization. Additionally, biodiesel can consist of up to hundred different FAMEs, depending on the plants oils used for the production.
Biodiesel composition has to meet the specifications given in the DIN EN 14214 in Europe and ASTM D6751 in U.S.A., which specify all legal limits for possible by-products. EN 14105 sets the standards to determine free and total glycerol and glycerol esters in biodiesel oil, while EN 14110 describes the required method for methanol determination. As biodiesel must consist of 90 % (m/m) or more of FAMEs within the range of C14:0 up to C24:1, the EN 14103 method establishes how to determine the ester content of FAMEs and amount of linolenic acid methyl ester.
DANI Instruments has developed a number of solutions that allow to achieve the most challenging regulatory compliance and the productivity needs.
