German biodiesel quality organization AGQM (Arbeitsgemeinschaft Qualitätsmanagement Biodiesel e.V.) announced the dates and program for its fourth International Conference for Biodiesel Manufacturers to be held April 29 and 30 in Berlin.

Politics and quality are the two main themes for the conference. Sessions will include market perspectives, implementation of the sustainability ordinance at the operational level and the emerging regulations for EU-level biofuel targets and sustainability. Technical sessions include the use of B100 in heavy duty engines, regulation of fuel injection via measuring the piston pressure curve, burner deposits using B20 heating oil, steryl glucoside/ acylated steryl glucosides and filter blocking, preparing a no-harm list for cold flow additives, ultrasonic waves in transesterification, homogenous catalysts, integrating fluid-fluid separators.

Prior to the main conference, AGQM is hosting two experts programs: a limited enrollment biodiesel analytics workshop focusing on "cold soak" testing and a one day workshop focusing on the sustainability requirements of the EC Renewable Energy Directive and the German Biomass Ordinance.
