By American Coalition for Ethanol | May 15, 2013

The American Coalition for Ethanol has joined the ASTM (Formerly American Society for Testing and Materials) Technical Committee D02 on Petroleum Products and Lubricants, represented by ACE Senior Vice President Ron Lamberty. Lamberty is participating in a training meeting this week in New Orleans. 

Lamberty says he’s excited to be a member of the committee and thinks he’ll be a good fit because of his background. 

“After over 30 years as a fuel retailer and station owner, I will look at standards not only from the point of view of ethanol producers, but from the practical perspective of someone who has to work with those specifications in the "real world." I look forward to offering whatever information I can on ethanol, as we work on future fuels with higher octane and higher concentrations of ethanol,” said Lamberty. 

The ASTM Committee D02 on Petroleum Products and Lubricants meets twice a year. The committee, currently has jurisdiction over 580 standards which are published in five volumes of the Annual Book of ASTM Standards. According to the ASTM, the standards developed during the committee meetings play an important role in all aspects relating to the standardization of petroleum products and lubricants.
