No.1 Amendment of national standard GB 18350-2013 “Denatured fuel ethanol”
... 45 
Chapter 4 of this standard is mandatory AND the rest is recommended.
This standard was drafted in accordance with the rules given in GB/T 1.1-2009.
This standard replaces GB 18350-2001 “Denatured fuel ethanol”.
As compared with GB 18350-2001, the main changes of this standard are as
- ADD the sulfur content index, which is less than or equal to 30 mg/kg;
- MODIFY the amount of addition of the denaturant, changing the volume
ratio of the fuel ethanol to the denaturant from 100.2 ~ 100.5 to 100.1 ~
- MODIFY the inorganic chlorine content, from less than or equal to 32 mg/L
to less than or equal to 8 mg/L.
This standard was proposed by AND shall be under the jurisdiction of the
National Standardization Technical Committee on Denatured Fuel Ethanol and
Fuel Ethanol (SAC/TC 349).
The drafting organizations of this standard. Henan Tianguan Enterprise Group
Co., Ltd., China Food and Fermentation Industry Research Institute, Jilin Fuel
Ethanol Co., Ltd., COFCO China Petroleum & Chemical Corporation
Petrochemical Research Institute.

Xinguang, Qiao Qing’an, Zheng Wei, Yue Guojun, Liu Jiuxin, Ni Bei.
This Standard replaces the standard previously issued as follows.
- GB 18350-2001.
Denatured fuel ethanol
1 Scope
This standard specifies the terms and definitions, requirements, test methods,
inspection rules and marking, packaging, transportation, and storage of
denatured fuel ethanol.
This standard applies to the fuel ethanol which is produced by using such raw
materials as starch, sugar, cellulose and so on through fermentation, distillation,
and dehydration, AND denatured by adding the denaturant.

4.2.2 Metal corrosion inhibitors
It shall add in the effective metal corrosion inhibitor to comply with the stripe
copper corrosion requirements of the ethanol gasoline for motor vehicles.
4.2.3 Physical and chemical indicators
The physical and chemical indexes of denatured fuel ethanol shall comply with
the requirements of Table 1.

Appendix A
Determination of ethanol and methanol in denatured fuel ethanol (gas
A.1 Scope of application
A.1.1 This method is applicable to the determination of ethanol and methanol
in denatured fuel ethanol by gas chromatography. The scope of determination
of this method is the ethanol having a mass fraction from 93% to 97% AND the
methanol having a mass fraction from 0.01% to 0.6%. The mass fraction of
ethanol and methanol beyond this scope may also be determined by this
method, BUT its precision may be not suitable. Meanwhile, this method also
provides the formula of converting the contents of these two alcohols from mass
fraction to volume fraction.
A.1.2 This method cannot determine the moisture content of denatured fuel
ethanol. Moisture shall be measured in accordance with Appendix B, AND the
alcohol content as determined by gas chromatography is corrected.
