Jamaica moves to vehicles trials of castor-based B5 blends

June 21, 2017 |

In Jamaica, the Petroleum Corp of Jamaica is moving forward its vehicular trials of B5 blends using castor oil-based biodiesel in an effort to see if the fuel could be a viable alternative for the island. The trials run jointly between the PCJ, the Ministry of Agriculture, Bodles Agricultural Research Station and the Caribbean Agricultural Research and Development Institute have been ongoing since December. No details about results from the trials so far have been released other than results are feeding back into the blending trials to find the right mix.
