Episode 019 - Biocides (Part 2)

Episode 019 - Biocides (Part 2)

TFP019

Previously, we spoke about microbial problems in fuel and why they happen so much more often these days. We also touched on what will actually solve microbial problems and what will not. In this episode, we are continuing our conversation about biocides. Specifically, we will be diving into why biocides are so heavily regulated, what it takes for a biocide to become registered and how to decide which biocide to purchase.

Listen in as I explain the importance of having a biocide that is effective in both fuel and water, as well as how biocides work in fuel. You will learn the importance of being careful about what you read when it comes to biocides (because it is all contextual), why you must remember that not all storage tanks are the same when searching for a biocide and how often you should be checking for microbial issues.


Listen to the Full Episode:

What You'll Learn:

  • How to know if something is actually a biocide.
  • Why biocides are so heavily regulated.
  • How a biocide becomes registered.
  • How to make the correct purchasing decision about a biocide.
  • Why your biocide must be effective in fuel and water.
  • What a high turn fuel situation is.

Ideas Worth Sharing:

  • “The only thing that will eliminate a microbial problem in a fuel storage tank is the application of a biocide.” - Erik Bjornstad
  • “Biocides are very heavily regulated.” - Erik Bjornstad
  • “Biocides cannot make any kind of claims that are not on the master label. If they do, then that is in fact illegal.” - Erik Bjornstad
  • “In whatever biocide that you pick, it has to be effective in both phases. It has to be effective in both fuel and water.” - Erik Bjornstad
  • “It’s important to remember that not all storage tanks are the same.” - Erik Bjornstad
