The Malaysian Government is considering the introduction of higher biodiesel blends beside B5 biodiesel. In the near future, B7 biodiesel plan will be translated into actions.
The action plans for B7 and B10 would include experts’ consultation, revision of Malaysian Standards, engine warranty issue and full implementation.
For B10, Malaysian Standards will have to be revised. The aspects include diesel fuel blending up to 10% of palm methyl ester. This is in line with Euro 2M specifications. Malaysian Palm Oil Board will need to carry out a consumer study, material compatibility test, quality test of B10 and testing of engine components.
