New ASTM Standard for Blendstock Fuels

ASTM International has approved a new standard for renewable bio-based blendstock fuels, like Sylvatex’s MicroX technology, that can be used as diesel fuel alternatives. “This new standard is needed because there is no relevant existing standard for this type of chemistry,” says Kristen Aramthanapon, technical advisor at Sylvatex, Inc. She adds that these specifications will be used by manufacturers and customers to ensure that the material being produced and used meets quality and consistency measures while also correlating with vehicle performance to fuel properties.
