Until then, you can review our previous activities:

ASTM Test Method Update – Subcommittee D02.D Hydrocarbons for Chemical and Special Uses | Speaker: George Gonzalez, Bureau Veritas - Inspectorate

  • Abstract: This ASTM subcommittee is currently working on several industry test methods. We are inviting users to attend this presentation and provide feedback on current and proposed test methods. The committee is open for volunteers to assist in method development and promulgation of new methods. This is an excellent opportunity to be a part of new and innovative ASTM test methods.

Introduction to ASTM Work Item WK29560 Standard Test Method for Permanent Gases in C3 and Lighter Hydrocarbon Products by Capillary Gas Chromatography and Pulse Discharge Helium Ionization Detector | Speaker: Shannon Coleman, Agilent Technologies

  • Abstract: An introduction on the work ASTM is doing to develop this method, along with a brief discussion allowing input from the group on ideas and concerns with the method.

Proposed New Standard Test Method for Impurities in Polymer-grade Ethylene and Propylene by Mass Spectrometry Detector | Speaker: David Cuthbert, Wasson-ECE

  • Abstract: A overview of instrumentation for the analysis of ethylene and propylene by MSD. Impurities measured include sulfurs, oxygenates, arsine, and phosphine.

Abstract light hydrocarbon analysis using wide-bore capillary columns | Speaker: Jan Pijpelink, Restek Corporation

  • Abstract: Many ASTM methods for the analysis of impurities in light hydrocarbon streams are based on packed gas chromatography column technology. To increase efficiency, shorten the analysis time and improve the separation of the components of interest, porous layer open tubular (PLOT) columns are preferred. This presentation shows that a packed column GC configuration can remain unchanged using wide-bore PLOT columns and which columns are available for light hydrocarbon analyses.

The History of WK35347 and WK11471: An Example of Why User Feedback is Important | Speaker: Alejandro J. Gonzalez, DCG Partnership I, LTD.

  • Abstract: A review of the work that has been done in the pursuit of a "Test method for analysis of piperylene, isoprene and other compounds in crude C5 hydrocarbon mixtures by gas chromatography and flame ionization detector".

BCEIA - Beijing Conference and Exhibition on Instrumental Analysis

Beijing Conference and Exhibition on Instrumental Analysis (BCEIA) was authorized by State Department, the People’s Republic of China in 1985 and held the first BCEIA that year by successfully the former National Science and Technology Committee of the People's Republic of China. This was the first ever of large-scale international conference and exhibition on analyzing and testing. Starting in 2001, BCEIA was authorized by the People's Republic of China Ministry of Science and Technology, organized and operated by China Association for Instrumental Analysis. After 29 years of growth and development, BCEIA had successfully held the fifteenth conference.
