ASTM D1655 SPECIFIES FIJI TECHNOLOGY

31/8/2018

Mandated test for co-processed aviation turbine fuels

Co-processing is the ability to refine bio feedstocks and intermediate petroleum products to produce renewable hydrocarbon fuels simultaneously.

When refineries co-process fuels there is a high potential for bio products to comingle with aviation fuels and quality assurance monitoring of product movement from refinery to wing is a challenge.

Therefore, ASTM D1655 now includes ASTM D7797/IP 583 (FIJI) as a mandated test for all refineries who are co-producing fuel.

FIJI is the preferred test for management of change (MOC) studies to release product. It helps to ensure co-processed feedstock has not exceeded the permitted level of 15mg/kg FAME. FIJI is suitable for untrained operators and gives rapid screening of all FAME types.
