January 30, 2008: Diesel from Polymers meets DIN Standard for Sulphur Content

Diesel out of polymers meets DIN standard for sulphur content


Wegberg. - The diesel fuel produced from polymer waste by Clyvia Technology GmbH now meets the DIN EN 590 standard for sulphur content. Last year the values measured for this standard were still much too high. This according to an announcement made by Clyvia in Wegberg about a report by TÜV Rheinland [Technical Control Board] on an inspection it conducted.


In another round of tests a sample of the finished product was taken under the supervision of TÜV Rheinland and submitted to Petro Lab GmbH in Speyer, for an independent party to analyze, whether the required chemo-physical parameters for diesel and fuel oil are being met.


In a total of 20 testing criteria, only four deviated. Two of these parameters – the oiliness and the prescribed temperature value CFPP – were easily rectified by adding agents. Furthermore, with an additional filter the physical dirt can be reduced, which is caused by the sodium emulsion utilized to lower the sulphur content.


Low density speaks for the high purity of the finished product


”All of this is entirely normal and in line,” according to Dr. Manfred Sappok, one of the two managing directors of Clyvia Technology GmbH. “Any large-scale refinery deals with similar issues. The insufficient density, on the other hand, is actually a positive indication and reflects the high chemical purity of our product. Here we now conversely have to add to the finished distillate a higher density mineral product in the ratio of 1 to 100. What is important to us, however, is that the sulphur content meets the standard. With a mere 5 ppm it is a lot lower than the limit; 50 ppm would actually be permissible.”


TÜV Rheinland is an internationally leading technology service group. At 360 locations in 62 countries on every content it employs more than 12,500 people with annual sales of over € 900 Million per year. The group’s philosophy and vision consists of developing safety and quality.


In their work, the employees of TÜV Rheinland believe that social and industrial development is impossible without technical advancement. This is why safe and responsible use of technical innovations, products and systems is so important. TÜV Rheinland has been a member of the United Nations Global Compact since 2006. TÜV Rheinland can look back on 130 years since its foundation and is headquartered in Cologne, Germany.
