B7 Biodiesel in Malaysia

The Malaysian Government has amended its plan of implementation of B5 biodiesel to B7 biodiesel.

Sources said that may be by December this year, the Government will be able to implement the use of B7 biodiesel nation wide.

The month of September 2014 has seen the price of crude palm oil dropped to below RM2000.

The current stock of crude palm oil in Malaysia stands at 1,600,000 metric ton. If the Government were able to implement B7 biodiesel, the palm oil stock could be reduced by 500,000 metric ton.

Carbon Deposit

What is carbon deposit in a vehicle?

It is accumulation of dried up fuel at the injection valve and wall of engine cylinder. It will grow bigger as it absorbs the incoming fuel.

Carbon deposit could cause lesser air and fuel go into the cylinder. This will result in incomplete combustion, lower compression ratio and power.

One way to clean up the carbon deposit is to use diesel additive or petrol additive. It serves as a detergent to keep the fuel injector clean. It can slowly clean up the carbon deposit by breaking the bond between carbon deposit and the engine parts.

What can engine oil additive do?


The engine oil is also known as motor oil.
What are the functions of engine oil?

Engine oil serves basically two functions. Firstly, it lubricates the moving part of the engine be it in vehicles, ships, compressor etc. It minimizes the friction so that the engine can achieve higher efficiency.
Secondly, engine oil protects metallic surfaces from the process of corrosion.

How does engine oil additive function?
Engine oil additive is a viscosity index improver. Viscosity of engine oil varies according to the temperature.  The extent viscosity varies according to the temperature is viscosity index. Engine oil additive makes the viscosity index small enough throughout the range of temperature from the lowest in the winter morning up to 200 degree Fahrenheit, the temperature of the engine.

Engine oil additive serves as rust inhibitor. Zinc is added in the engine oil additive to protect engine surfaces.
Engine oil additive also works as detergent which helps to clean up sludge on the engine built up over time.

Look for engine oil additive? Please refer to http://www.powerzone-biodiesel.com for a product "Powerzone Oil & Metal Conditional Additive".

Difference between diesel engine and petrol engine

The main difference between a diesel engine and a petrol engine is that diesel engine uses heat of compression to ignite and burn fuel whereas petrol engine uses spark plug to ignite an air-fuel mixture.

Due to its size, normally diesel engine are used for truck and ship.

Malaysian Fuel Subsidy

The Malaysian Government has to ensure there is no leakage in the distribution as it seeks to reduce its subsidy bill.

Recently, seven (7) companies have put in bids to assist the Government to achieve the goal.

The fuel subsidy must be controlled and be given to Malaysians only.

There are many ways to achieve the goals. Examples are :-

a. using MyKad to pay petrol at selected petrol kiosk. Amount will be deducted from the bank account end of the month.

b. using Smartcard to pay.

The subsidy has another objective namely to "tier" the subsidy according to either engine capacity or income.

The result of the bid would be made known to the public around September this year.

Malaysian Government Call to Invest in Palm Oil Downstream Industries

Malaysian palm oil industry has been dependent on upstream industry for many years. Upstream industry relies heavily on export of crude palm oil (CPO) which is subject to price fluctuation globally.

There is almost no value-added element in the upstream industry.

Some of the downstream palm oil industries are bio-lubricants, bio fuels, agro-chemicals. These downstream industries are capital intensive because they require new technologies.

To alleviate the burden on the downstream industries, Malaysian Government has disbursed capital expenditure incentive grant since 2011 to companies that are interested to embark further on palm oil downstream ventures.
