Indonesia plans to increase its consumption of biofuels next year to reduce costly imports of refined products. Jakarta will increase the mandatory biofuel content of diesel from the current 30% to 40% in 2023, Energy Minister Arifin Tasrif told a recent conference in Singapore. A 50,000 km road test is expected to end this month, with early results showing that cars "can operate normally and smoothly" on a 40% biodiesel blend said Dadan Kusdiana, the energy ministry's director general of renewable energy. Two different blends are being tested — one using 30% biodiesel made from palm oil, 10% hydrotreated vegetable oil and 60% diesel, and the second using 40% biodiesel made from palm oil and 60% diesel.
