    Revision of D7901 - 14 Standard Specification for Dimethyl Ether for Fuel Purposes

    (What is a Work Item?)

    Active Standard: D7901 - 14a

    Developed by Subcommittee: D02.H0 | Committee D02 | Contact Staff Manager



    WK45761

    1. Rationale

    In order to address concerns about lubricity, leak detection, and the wording of paragraph 4.2, three new ballots were submitted in January 2014 with proposed modifications to D7901-14. Additional negative votes and comments were received on these revisions. In a recent task force meeting, the group decided to withdraw ballots for Item 2 (leak detection) and Item 3 (revisions to paragraph 4.2) and propose new ballots. This work item will cover these modifications.
