The circulating pictures show the interaction among the IASH members at our most recent symposium held in October 2013 in Rhodes, Greece, where 57 presentations and 19 posters were presented. IASH Symposiums alternate between North America and Europe every two years. The IASH 14th International Symposium on Stability, Handling and Use of Liquid Fuels will be held the 4-8 October 2015 at Charleston, South Carolina USA.
UPDATE 10/3 PM ON THE RAIN & FLOODING IN CHARLESTON AND ITS EFFECT ON THE IASH SYMPOSIUM. CHARLESTON HAS GOTTEN A LOT OF RAIN TODAY AND IT WILL CONTINUE TOMORROW. THE RESORT IS OPEN AND THE ROADS FROM THE AIRPORT TO WILD DUNES ARE OPEN ALTHOUGH VERY WET.
Many of our delegates have arrived and the symposium will continue as planned and the weather is expected to be a range of mid-60's to mid-70's with rain stopping on Monday. Shirley Bradicich
Welcome to IASH
The vision of the International Association for Stability, Handling and Use of Liquid Fuels (IASH) was formed in 1983 to become the leading association for fuel stability and handling, which has been realized over the last three decades. Since that time, IASH has held 13 symposia/conferences, attracted 2,240 people from 35 countries, published more than 700 technical papers and 146 technical posters, and is recognized throughout the world as the premier forum for liquid fuel technical discussions. The IASH family currently consists of over 217 members from 30 countries and our vision remains steadfast.
IASH promotes research, development and discussion into the issues of liquid fuel stability, handling and use from detailed chemical pathways, through microbiological degradation and remediation, testing and issues arising from distribution and use. Over the IASH lifetime, we have moved from a world of solely conventional fuels derived from crude oil to today’s reality of conventional fuels, synthetic fuels – including renewable fuels – as well as associated performance enhancing and stability additives. IASH continues to challenge the boundaries of science and understanding in all aspects of liquid fuels.
IASH provides a forum to facilitate and encourage the exchange of scientific knowledge by promoting research and experimentation on the scientific and operational factors affecting the stability and handling of liquid fuels during their manufacture, blending, transportation, storage and use. Our volunteers are drawn from a cross-section of government, academia and industry – and many are world-renowned technical experts in their field. It is our goal to expand the knowledge of liquid fuels in a wide range of topic areas, including:
