ASTM WK40362

    Work Item: ASTM WK40362 - Revision of D7666 - 12 Standard Specification for Triglyceride Burner Fuel

    (What is a Work Item?)

    Active Standard: D7666 - 12

    Developed by Subcommittee: D02.P0 | Committee D02 | Contact Staff Manager



    1. Rationale

    State and federal incentives have encouraged triglyceride use, primarily through tax incentives or for emissions & greenhouse gas reductions. The standard for Triglyceride Burner Fuels, D7666, defines neat (unblended) fuels only. Most applications use blends of biomass oils/triglycerides and petroleum fuel oils and the triglyceride fuels have slightly different specifications than found in D7666. This work item is introduced to address the need for slightly broader application of the triglyceride fuels, introduce two or more new grades of the fuel, and provide clarity to the market and policy makers using them for fuel preparation, quality checking, bid and purchasing contracts.
