CEN, the European Standards Organisation, have published 2 standards and one technical specification (TS) covering automotive fuels during September.
CEN/TS15940:2012 is entitled “Automotive fuels – Paraffinic diesel fuel from synthesis or hydrotreatment – Requirements and test methods”
EN 16270:2012 is entitled “Automotive fuels – Determination of high-boiling components including fatty acid methyl esters in petrol – Gas Chromatographic method.”
EN 16300:2012 is entitled ” Automotive fuels – Determination of iodine value in fatty acid methyl esters (FAMEs) – Calculation method from gas chromatographic data.
These reflect the use of fuels from non-fossil sources in modern petroleum products, as required under legislation.
