Oxidation stability is the main characteristic to determine shelf life of biodiesel or oxidation status. For European legislation, the induction period of biodiesel, determined by EN14112, should be upper to 6h. This work intends verify if EN14112 can be used to determine a presence of inadequate biofuels into fresh biodiesel. Was determined impact on induction period when oxidized biofuel is blended with fresh biodiesel. Fresh soybean methyl biodiesel (FSB) with antioxidant was used as base...
