Extending the EN14214:2003 Standard Measurement Techniques for Biofuel Quality to Cover Special Analytical Issues

C.G. Siontorou
The emerging biofuels sector enjoys presently a strong growth, while new biomass­to­biofuels pathways are leading rapidly to third­ and fourth­generation sustainable solutions. The change to renewable energy, however, is not an easy task; besides the technical challenges, there remain key considerations about the lack of appropriate quality standards. Most of the standards developed for biofuels, as the EN14214:2003, are drawn from the assessment of petrofuels, despite the distinct differences between biomass­derived fuel chemistry and petrochemistry....
