A presentation on the steps needed to start the process of developing an ASTM specification for Ammonia when used as a motor vehicle fuel.

  • What does standard consist of? Minimum quality, harmful contaminants, storage, handling, and safety concerns.
  • The need to indentify or develop standardized test methods.
  • The need for participation by producers (production & distribution), users (OEM’s), general interest groups (government, testing labs), and consumers (fleet owners).
  • Appropriate committee: ASTM, SAE or ISO.
  • Timeframe and hurdles.
  • Volunteers to form an exploratory committee.
