EN14214 is a European standard specifying the requirements and test methods for the production of fatty acid methyl esters (FAME) for use as a diesel fuel or as a blending component with diesel fuel. This standard ensures that the biodiesel produced is fit for purpose in terms of engine performance and emissions when used in diesel engines. It addresses parameters such as the ester content, density, viscosity, cetane number, sulphur content, and other important properties that affect the quality and performance of biodiesel.

EN14214 also includes limits for potentially harmful substances in biodiesel, such as monoglycerides, diglycerides, triglycerides, and methanol content, to prevent engine damage and ensure safe operation. Compliance with EN14214 is crucial for any biodiesel producer looking to sell their product within the European market.
