First No-Harm Additive for Bio Heating Oil

(PresseBox) (Berlin, ) For the first time an oxidation stabilizer could pass the no-harm test for bio heating oil successfully. A new no-harm list for bio heating oil is now available at Association Quality Management Biodiesel (AGQM).

For many years, AGQM offers a no-harm test for oxidation stabilizers for the additivation of biodiesel as fuel component. As there are different requirements for bio heating oil, a new no-harm test for the safe additivation of bio heating oil was developed. The oxidation stabilizer IONOL BH 1000 from Oxiris Chemicals S.A. passed this new no-harm test successfully. In the previous year two additives failed, so IONOL BH 1000 is the first one to be added to the new no-harm list for bio heating oil additives available on AGQM’s homepage www.agqm‑biodiesel.de/en.

In contrast to the fuel additive test, the examinations of the no-harm test for bio heating oil additives are performed with a B20 fuel instead of a B10 fuel. A confirmation of the additive being ash-free is necessary and additionally, the additized FAME (fatty acid methyl ester) is checked for selected parameters of EN 14214. Neither an engine test nor a check of compatibility with engine oil are part of this test. But the well-known and important relative efficiency test is included. The test examines how efficient an additive is in comparison to the same concentration of BHT (butylhydroxytoluene).

Information to the next test round which will probably start in autumn 2017 can be requested under info@agqm‑biodiesel.de
