Be Prepared, Biofuels are Coming

Biofuels-are-coming

The forum covered both national and European legislative changes and the recent and projected amendments to fuel specifications whilst exploring the impact that these changes have on fuel management and housekeeping requirements.

As a result of environmental directives from the EU which will see the percentage of bio components in diesel increase to over 20% by 2020, the key focus was on how to manage the transition from conventional hydrocarbon based fuels to next generation biofuels with minimal business disruption.

Over three consecutive days from June 22-24 Mark Calvert, Managing Director of Adler and Allan chaired each day’s forum. Robin Lloyd, Biofuels Technical Manager for Mabanaft UK who jointly hosted the event, covered changes in legislation, regulation and fuel specification that are currently taking place within the industry. Dr Philip Nathan, Adler and Allan’s expert on petrochemicals and a Professor of Microbiology presented the technical issues and latest solutions for the storage and distribution of gasoil and biodiesel.

The forum was aimed at a wide cross-section of organisations who distribute, maintain, use or store fuel. The event also included live fuel polishing demonstrations on the college grounds. This was to show attendees there are solutions that can bring back highly contaminated fuel product to well within specification.

Shortly afterwards, I received a phone call confirming that a team had been dispatched and given an estimated time of arrival. Team arrived on site on time and completed the mop up effectively.

…thanks for the assistance that your call out team provided to help us deal with the water ingress into our building here…I know we get a good service from yourselves with regards to looking after our fuel system but when called upon at such short notice to help out with the water leak, we received an excellent service once again.

Please could we say thank you to the guys who cleaned up the diesel in the oil tank room. I was extremely pleased with the work they have completed and in their work ethics. The floor now looks like you could eat off it.
