Malaysia's palm oil board and state oil firm Petronas have signed an agreement to study the use of used cooking oil and palm oil waste as sustainable aviation fuel.
The two organisations signed a memorandum of understanding (MoU) on August 14 to explore the potential of palm-based products and wastes, such as used cooking oil and palm oil mill effluent, as the main raw materials for local bio-refineries to produce sustainable aviation fuel, Reuters reported.
“The signing of the MoU is also in line with the National Energy Policy 2022-2040 to reduce carbon emissions and make the energy sector a catalyst for the nation's socioeconomic development," the Malaysian Palm Oil Board said in a statement.
