  • EU fuel quality monitoring — 2014

    Each year, under the requirements of the European Union (EU) Fuel Quality Directive (FQD) (1), EU Member States must report various types of information relating to the quality of petrol and diesel fuels sold in their territories. More specifically, Member States must sample fuels each year and analyse their technical characteristics to ensure that they are consistent with the requirements of the ...

  • Aviation fuel cleanliness

    This autumn sees the launch of the second edition of the EI’s handbook, 1550; a title which has become a key industry reference for everyone involved in handling aviation fuel since the first edition was issued in 2007. Martin Hunnybun, EI Technical Team Manager – Fuels & Fuel Handling, describes the new content. With over 20 specified performance parameters, jet fuel is one of ...

  • Get comparable ASTM/EN data for biodiesel blend while saving time and money

    If you need to verity how much biodiesel is in a diesel fuel, sending a sample off to a laboratory can take several days to get an answer. This can add unnecessary delays if a truck has just been loaded for a delivery, but must wait for the lab result. The best solution is to have an on-site test where the fuel is loaded or delivered. The two most widely used analytical methods for measuring the ...

  • Behaviour investigation of hematite nanorods synthesised by hydrothermal method use in hydrogen fuel storage

    For the first time, hematite nanorods were successfully synthesised using iron nitrate precursors in the presence of cation SO4−2. This is also the first time that an investigation into hematite nanorods behaviour for hydrogen fuel storage has been carried out. Microspheres constructed with α-FeOOH ...

  • Biofuels blend measurements with portable mid-infrared analyzers

    Globally, governments are putting more emphasis on sustainable energy sources and are creating energy policies that promote the production and use of biofuels. With the Renewable Fuels Standard-2 (RFS-2), the United States set biofuels blending volumes to 12.95 billion gallons (49.0 billion liters) for 2010, increasing to 36 billion gallons (136 billion liters) by 2022. With similar mandates or ...

  • Examination of hot particles originating from damaged fuels at the nuclear power plant Paks

    Radioactive samples can contain radionuclides not only in homogeneous form, but also as 'hot' particles. With the characterisation of these high activity particles, information about the source of the samples can be obtained. The examination of hot particles is important in the case of environmental as well as nuclear samples; this paper details the analyses of particles originating from ...
