Canadian groups start free B100 testing program
The Alberta Research Council (ARC) has teamed with Natural Resources Canada to create the Proficiency Testing Program for Biodiesel, an inter-laboratory exchange program that is fully subsidized for Canadian laboratories. The program began in December and will run through March 2007. It will test 13 different aspects of biodiesel from flash points to phosphorus content, and more. The ARC will host a workshop at the end of the program that will focus on biodiesel analytical test methods and the program's results.
