Itís great to have FAME equipment delivered ready to use
As the use of biodiesel increases, so does the importance of Fatty Acid Methyl Ester (FAME) analyses. A year
ago, Bureau Veritasí Amterdam lab invested in special equipment to quickly analyze FAME samples from ship cargoes.
Bureau Veritasí laboratory in the Port of Amsterdam specializes in analyzing gasoline, diesel, fuel oil and aviation fuel. Not far from the lab, tankers carrying shipments of these fuels navigate the North Sea Canal. No ship is allowed to load or unload its cargo until the fuel quality has been checked by an independent laboratory. Which is why Bureau Veritas has a team of analysts on standby 24-7. They check samples and deliver their quality control results as fast as possible. Their tests include density measurements, fuel composition and octane or cetane number.
