The Energy Institute is holding a two day event to discuss key issues relating to Test Methods and measurement properties of aviation fuels (Jet fuel and AVGAS), including a key industry presentation on the current and future issues/requirements for specification testing of Jet and AVGAS.


Day one - FAME in Jet Measurement

This session will provide laboratory users of the EI FAME in Jet Measurement Methods best practice guidance on test method application, updates on the latest test method revisions, and current status of the EI Ruggedness Study and Inter Laboratory precision study for these methods.

10.00 - 17.10

Confirmed speakers and topics

Dr Jim Barker, Innospec

Erwin Barendregt/Piet Koppen, PAC
IP PM EL Heart-Cut GC Method overview of robustness and round robin studies

Bob Hooks FEI, Consultant

Day two - Aviation Fuels Test Methods New Developments & Issues
This conference on aviation fuel test methods – developments and issues will be an interactive seminar that will promote and disseminate industry best practice, examining current test methods and measurements available for aviation fuels and reviewing potential impact of new technologies. In addition to FAME in Jet measurement update, specific issues and new developments for test methods such as low temperature viscosity, particle counting, thermal stability, freezing point and naphthalenes will be discussed.

The opening presentation will be a scene setting overview covering the current specifications test method requirements, as well as the future potential issues that may result in further modification of current aviation fuel specifications to meet the challenges of the aviation industry and stakeholders requirements.
