WITHDRAWN, NO REPLACEMENT
This practice shall apply to all fuel alcohol manufacturing facilities (FAMF) as defined in Terminology E 1705. This specification is primarily intended for, but not exclusively limited to fermentation ethanol processes.Formerly under the jurisdiction of Committee E48 on Biotechnology, this practice was withdrawn in September 2009. During the working group discussions, there was no interest identified in updating this practice.
1.1 This practice shall apply to all fuel alcohol manufacturing facilities (FAMF) as defined in Terminology E 1705. This specification is primarily intended for, but not exclusively limited to fermentation ethanol processes.
1.2 This practice applies to both batch and continuous FAMF systems. Since a wide variety of equipment configurations can exist, this engineering practice will describe the necessary general requirements common to all FAMF facilities.
1.3 This practice is to be used in conjunction with applicable local, state, and Federal codes for designing, constructing, and operating FAMF facilities.
1.4 The values stated in SI units are to be regarded as the standard. The values given in parentheses are for information only.
1.5 This standard does not purport to address all of the safety concerns, if any, associated with its use. It is the responsibility of the user of this standard to establish appropriate safety and health practices and determine the applicability of regulatory limitations prior to use . For hazard statement, see Section 11.
