We are proud to announce that over the summer our Technical Director Dr Joan Kelley was appointed Chair of the Energy Institute Microbiology Committee

https://www.energyinst.org/.

The committee develops guidelines and standards for the detection, prevention and remediation of microbial contamination in fuels and lubricants, designed to be used in both upstream and downstream aspects of the petroleum industry.

Dr Kelley states: ‘After many years where fuels and microbial detection methods have changed a little, we have entered a period where they are now developing rapidly.  Biodiesels and synthetic fuels are challenging our understanding of the basics of fuel microbial ecology. Microbial Molecular Methods (MMM) can help us understand microbial ecology in ways we couldn’t imagine 10 years ago.  What was considered ‘Next Generation Sequencing’ (NGS) only 3 years ago is now virtually routine and while it will be a few more years before these techniques are developed as rapid field test methods, people are using them to understand what is happening microbiologically in the new fuels and lubricants.  The EI Microbiology Committee supports the needs of the petroleum industry and as it changes we need to change with it.  New technologies allow us to better understand the microbiology of new fuels and the EI committee will continue to translate developments into clear guidance on best practice for the industry in general.’

Inter-laboratory Study Comparison Demonstrates Fuel Microbial Contamination Detection Challenges – The International Biodeterioration & Biodegradation  describe the results of two fuel microbiology ASTM test method inter-laboratory studies (ILS) – FUELSTAT Plus in compliance with ASTM D8070.
