Biofpr (Biofuels, Bioproducts and Biorefining) is running a free webinar, 'Measure biofuel parameters - when and where you need to' on Tuesday 5 March, at 16.00 UTC (GMT).
The increased growth in the use of biofuels and associated regulations has presented the industry with a unique set of challenges. The breadth of source materials requires careful control of the quality of the end product. Once produced, use is made of existing processing capabilities and pipelines raising concerns around cross contamination.
This webinar will focus on mobile analysis solutions that take the analysis of biodiesel and biogas on location, away from the laboratory, without compromising analytical performance, all while adhering to industry standards EN, ISO, ASTM, and CN methods. Moving analysis onsite enables quicker decision making and faster intervention whenever and wherever it is needed.
Learning objectives include how to measure biodiesel concentration in diesel fuel:
- Mixing and contamination levels
- Diesel fuel quality and contamination parameters, including standard methods ASTM D7371-01 and EN 14078
Participants will also look at how to measure biogas composition:
- Onsite analysis of pure biogas
- Biogas analysis when mixed with other hydrocarbon streams (natural gas, liquefied petroleum gas)
