The Energy Institute (EI) commissioned a review paper, Implications of biofuels on microbial spoilage and corrosion within the fuel distribution chain and end use, published in May 2008, which identified that very little research had been conducted to establish the extent to which FAME content influenced the susceptibility of fuels to microbial spoilage.

At the request of the EI’s Microbiology Committee, a laboratory study was undertaken to investigate the influence of FAME concentration on the susceptibility of fuels to microbiological spoilage.

This research report presents the results of the laboratory study.
