news item image
Indonesia's consumption of palm oil-based biodiesel for the first six months of this year was estimated at 5.41 million kilolitres, data from palm oil fund agency BPDPKS revealed.
Indonesia has allocated a 13.15 million kilolitres biodiesel quota for this year after it raised its mandatory palm oil blend in biodiesel in February from 30% to 35% - a programme better known as B35, Reuters reported.
That mandatory B35 blend is only now being fully implemented as some regions needed to upgrade their infrastructure to meet the new requirement for the higher blend.
The world's biggest palm oil producer has pushed a wide use of the palm oil based fuel to reduce crude oil imports and shift to lower emission fuel.
