The IRMM has selected Intertek’s BTC laboratory in Spain to conduct determinations of cloud-point (CP) analysis and cold filter plugging point (CFPP) testing under repeatable conditions for a set of diesel fuel samples. The tests will determine the stability of reference material ERM-395k, and shall be performed in accordance with the methods provided by the European Commission. The Intertek BTC laboratory, located in the Port of Bilbao, specializes the testing and analysis of petroleum, fuels, and other hydrocarbons.
The Institute for Reference Materials and Measurements (IRMM) is one of the seven institutes of the Joint Research Centre (JRC), a Directorate-General of the European Commission.
The IRMM supports industrial competitiveness, quality of life, safety and security in the EU by developing advanced measurement standards and providing state-of-the-art scientific advice concerning measurements and standards for EU policies. The IRMM’s main objective is to build confidence in the comparability of measurements by the production and dissemination of internationally accepted quality assurance tools, including validated methods, reference materials, reference measurements, inter-laboratory comparisons and training.
