The increased corrosion in the diesel infrastructure was first noticed in 2007, shortly after the introduction of ULSD (Ultra Low Sulfur Diesel) biodiesel blends. In 2016, the EPA published it's research results, which found 83% of storage tanks have moderate to severe corrosion. Is it now 100% severe?
Go to the Tab Corrosion to understand the corrosion mechanism, and learn about the SAE J1488 standards based solution to control corrosion in stored diesel.
Octane offers Exergy’s Always On, Always Green, Always Save energy model to its existing and prospective customers. Exergy provides renewable energy and backup power, while removing Capex acquisition and staffing costs, in addition to removing the corrosion risk and the pollution of diesel systems. The latest green technology is implemented; a gas generator, solar panels and battery storage, is installed as required.
This is ideal for companies and organizations requiring backup generators, but do not want to use their limited resources to buy and manage their own system, and want to help mitigate pollution and corrosion concerns from diesel generators.
Pat has been involved in diesel corrosion control since 2013, presented in 2022 to the ASTM Working Group on Diesel Corrosivity. Pat has contributed to organizations such as the EGSA, the EPA, the Uptime Institute and BioFuels Digest. Pat is a lecturer in BioFuelNet Canada’s Advanced Biofuels Course, hosted on McGill University’s myCourses platform
