Be Prepared, Biofuels are Coming

The forum covered both national and European legislative changes and the recent and projected amendments to fuel specifications whilst exploring the impact that these changes have on fuel management and housekeeping requirements.

As a result of environmental directives from the EU which will see the percentage of bio components in diesel increase to over 20% by 2020, the key focus was on how to manage the transition from conventional hydrocarbon based fuels to next generation biofuels with minimal business disruption.

Over three consecutive days from June 22-24 Mark Calvert, Managing Director of Adler and Allan chaired each day’s forum. Robin Lloyd, Biofuels Technical Manager for Mabanaft UK who jointly hosted the event, covered changes in legislation, regulation and fuel specification that are currently taking place within the industry. Dr Philip Nathan, Adler and Allan’s expert on petrochemicals and a Professor of Microbiology presented the technical issues and latest solutions for the storage and distribution of gasoil and biodiesel.

The forum was aimed at a wide cross-section of organisations who distribute, maintain, use or store fuel. The event also included live fuel polishing demonstrations on the college grounds. This was to show attendees there are solutions that can bring back highly contaminated fuel product to well within specification.
