ASTM WK68064

    New Test Method for Standard Test Method for Determination of Paraffin and Cycloparaffin Content in Saturated Bio-Jet Fuel by Gas Chromatography

    (What is a Work Item?)

    Developed by Subcommittee: D02.04 | Committee D02 | Contact Staff Manager



    WK68064

    1. Scope

    Scope 1.1 This test method covers the determination of paraffin content in saturated bio-jet fuel by gas chromatography. 1.2 The paraffin content is determined from 85 to 100% by mass


    Keywords

    Bio-jet fuel; paraffin; cycloparaffin; gas chromatography

    Rationale

    Bio-Jet fuels are being evaluated for blending with aviation fuel provided they meet specifications listed in D7566. One of these specifications is that saturated paraffin content be 15%, and saturated cycloparaffin content be 15%, as determined by D2425. However, D2425 is intended for full boiling range products normally derived from petroleum based materials. This method is to determine the paraffin content in Bio-Jet fuels that do not fit the scope of D2425.

    The title and scope are in draft form and are under development within this ASTM Committee.
