I would be very benifical to allow the use of Raman Spectroscopy to be an approved method the the FTNIR when it comes to the acceptance of meeting specifications for shipping fuels such as gasoline, diesel and avjet by refineries. I am very familiar with both the FTNIR and Raman measurements on fuels. In my opinion the Raman is a much simpler and as accurate if not more accurate than the FTNIR. Most of the people that I know would use Raman if given the choice. Would appreciate you approving Raman as an acceptable method to ship fuels in addition to FTNIR.
