Annex 27: Standardization of Alternative Fuels
The annex was established by IEA/AMF in April 2002. During Phase I a state of the art report was produced concerning standardization of alternative fuels in Canada, Finland, France, Japan, Sweden, USA and the European Standardisation Organisation CEN as well as the International Standardisation Organisation ISO. During Phase I was also a first investigation carried out concerning a possible co-operation between IEA/AMF and CEN and/or ISO. The result of Phase I was presented to the ExCo in January 2004 and a written report was distributed to all IEA/AMF participants.
In March 2003 IEA/AMF decided to start a Phase II of the Annex with the purpose to further and more thoroughly analyse the possibility and if so also the forms for a co-operation between IEA/AMF and CEN and/or ISO. The result was presented to IEA/AMF in October 2004 and a written report was distributed to all IEA/AMF participants. The result of Phase II was a recommendation to IEA/AMF to seek for co-operation with both CEN and ISO since it would be of importance for IEA/AMF in its work to i.a. disseminate knowledge and experiences from work done with support from IEA/AMF and also would contribute to make IEA/AMF more known by countries around the world. For the moment is a proposal being discussed concerning how to carry out such a co-operation. The proposal is to establish a new Annex for co-operation with CEN and ISO concerning standardization of alternative as well as advanced motor fuels.
A report covering data and information collected during Phase I as well as proposals for future work has been distributed in November 2003. In October 2004 a report of Phase II concerning co-operation between IEA/AMF and CEN and/or ISO was distributed Both reports are publicly available through Atrax, the ExCo members and the AMF Secretary and this website.
