Indonesia’s utility says B100 doesn’t work for diesel engines

January 30, 2020 |

In Indonesia, the Jakarta Post newspaper reports that the national utility PLN has said using 100% palm oil in its diesel power stations isn’t viable as it damages the engines from a crust that is created on the machines. The president of the utility says that using B100 causes twice as many carbon emissions than using diesel and that use of vegetable oil is best in engines that have been designed to use the fuel. The utility began using B20 back in 2015 and switched to B30 in 2018, well ahead of late 2019 when the fuel was mandated for use in vehicles.
