[454 kB :: downloaded 903 times]
This White Paper was drafted by an international task force consisting of experts on biofuels standards from the standardization bodies of the Tripartite Agreement amongst Brazil, the European Union and the USA. The executive summary concludes with recommendations to further disseminate the White Paper to the standardisation bodies, to the International Biofuels Forum as well as the governments of Brazil and USA, and the European Commission. Each of the two groups assembled and translated existing standards from ABNT, ASTM International and CEN, and the units for specifications were converted to a common basis. Each task force first compared the standards as they presently exist. Since it was noted that many parameters were different, the task force members entered into discussions and negotiations and were able to make specific recommendations to address these differences. They further agreed that these recommendations should be forwarded to standards bodies for consideration and possible implementation.
