Paragon Laboratories No. 1-B S15

No. 1-B S15 | Biodiesel (B100) Testing According to ASTM 6751-18

ASTM D6751-18, Standard Specification for Biodiesel Fuel Blend Stock (B100) for Middle Distillate Fuels, defines and provides specifications for No. 1-B S15 biodiesel (B100) blendstock.

No. 1-B S15 is a special purpose blendstock for use in middle distillate fuel applications which may be sensitive to partially reacted glycerides, including applications requiring low temperature operability, with 15 ppm sulfur maximum.

Paragon is capable of performing a majority of the analysis related to No. 1-B S15 blendstock according to ASTM D6751-18 specifications.

Procedures included on our A2LA Scope of Accreditation to ISO/IEC 17025:2005 are designated as such.
