Discussion topics at this session will include new evaluations of microbial test, methods and limits for storage facilities. Discussion will provide insight into the details associated with microbial growth in fuel/water interfaces and the effects in product quality and performance as well as uncontrolled microbial contamination in fuel and fuel systems and the economic loss cause by bio deterioration. Also discussed will be microbial contamination of Ultra Low Sulfur Diesel (ULSD), specifically looking at the impact as well as causes and prevention.
