B6 to B20 S15 | Biodiesel Blend (B6-B20) Testing According to ASTM D7467-18b

ASTM D7467-18b, Standard Specification for Diesel Fuel Oil, Biodiesel Blend (B6 to B20) defines and provides specifications for B6 to B20 S15 fuel blends.

B6 to B20 S15 fuel blends are ultra-low sulfur (ULS) blends of biodiesel blend stock conforming to ASTM D6751 and light middle or middle distillate fuel diesel fuel with a maximum of 15 ppm sulfur allowed in the final blend.

Paragon is capable of performing a majority of the analysis related to the testing of B6 to B20 S15 fuel blends according to ASTM D7467-18b Table 1 specifications.

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