    Abstract

    There are over 60 ASTM and other regulatory standards regarding the manufacture and sales of biodiesel fuels. These international standards require a number of calibration standards for evaluation of a biodiesel fuel. Some of the biodiesel testing are the same as required for petroleum based diesel fuel; however a number of these tests are unique to the biodiesel industry. This paper lists all the known standard procedures that biodiesel fuels must be evaluated against. It lists all the procedures where no calibration standards are required, those procedures that require calibration standards that are more or less common to the diesel industry, and those procedures that require calibration standards that are unique to the biodiesel industry (e.g., ASTM D6584, “Free and Total Glycerine”).
