SGS fuel analysis – FAME EN 14214 Biofuel: Bioheating Oil
Biofuel is a form of renewable energy derived from a wide range of biomass-based products. There are currently two main forms: bioethanol and Fatty Acid Methyl Ester (FAME). The FAME is produced by extracting vegetable oil from various plants; such as switchgrass, and then esterifying it.
The FAME is blended with gasoline and diesel to produce biofuels, which can be used in unmodified engines.
SGS is the world’s leading inspection, verification, testing and certification company
They are recognized as the global benchmark for quality and integrity. With more than 89,000 employees, they operate a network of more than 2,600 offices and laboratories around the world.
In November 2020, the independent and accredited laboratory SGS analyzed a sample of Biofuel (pure bioheating oil) treated with the XBEE Enzyme Fuel Technology.
The analysis demonstrated that such fuel, also known as FAME or B100, remains in compliance with the EN 14214 standard.
