With mid-FTIR
interferometer, scanning
range 450-7000 cm-1
Result was calculated by
calibration, with showed
graph of fuel blend. And will
be showed by % FAME.

With heart cut method from 1st


instrument to 2nd instrument GC
Result was calculated by
calibration, with showed graph of
fuel blend in GC1 and graph of
biodiesel in GC2 after switching.
And will be calculated to % FAME.
