PUTRAJAYA: Petrol stations nationwide will have to switch to B10 biodiesel from the current B7 diesel blend by February 2019, said Primary Industries Minister Teresa Kok.
She said the B10 biodiesel programme was rolled out in December last year for the transportation sector, and has been implemented in phases.
“The B10 programme targets to increase the blending ratio of palm biofuel in diesel from seven per cent to 10 per cent.

“The Government has announced the B10 mandate for the transportation sector as part of the crude palm oil supply management mechanism to stabilise palm oil prices by reducing the high domestic stock level and increasing the sustainability of energy sources,” she said in her keynote address at the Palm Oil Economic Review and Outlook Seminar 2019, here, Thursday.
Her speech was read by her deputy, Datuk Seri Shamsul Iskandar Md Akin.
Kok said the B7 programme for the industrial sector would be implemented starting July 1 this year, which would boost local demand for palm oil to 386,993 tonnes per year from the current 373,512 tonnes.
“The mandatory implementation (of the programmes) in both sectors is estimated to require 760,505 tonnes of palm oil annually and is expected to have a positive impact on palm oil prices,” she said.

PUTRAJAYA: Petrol stations nationwide will have to switch to B10 biodiesel from the current B7 diesel blend by February 2019, said Primary Industries Minister Teresa Kok.
She said the B10 biodiesel programme was rolled out in December last year for the transportation sector, and has been implemented in phases.
“The B10 programme targets to increase the blending ratio of palm biofuel in diesel from seven per cent to 10 per cent.
“The government has announced the B10 mandate for the transportation sector as part of the crude palm oil supply management mechanism to stabilise palm oil prices by reducing the high domestic stock level and increasing the sustainability of energy sources,” she said in her keynote address at the Palm Oil Economic Review and Outlook Seminar 2019 here yesterday.
Her speech was read by her deputy, Datuk Seri Shamsul Iskandar Md Akin.
Kok said the B7 programme for the industrial sector would be implemented starting July 1 this year, which would boost local demand for palm oil to 386,993 tonnes per year from the current 373,512 tonnes.
“The mandatory implementation (of the programmes) in both sectors is estimated to require 760,505 tonnes of palm oil annually and is expected to have a positive impact on palm oil prices,” she said.
Kok said the government also planned to increase the biodiesel blend from B10 to B20 by 2020.
She said the local palm oil industry’s performance last year was somewhat mixed, with the industry recording a 3.6 per cent growth in the export of palm oil products.
“But the crude palm oil (CPO) price declined to an average of RM2,232 a tonne in 2018 from RM2,783 in 2017, influenced by the weaker soybean oil price, its main competitor in the world market, and a high domestic palm oil stockpile,” she added.
As a result, the revenue from palm oil products dropped by 12.3 per cent to RM62.68 billion during the January -November period in 2018, compared to RM71.44 billion in the corresponding period of 2017.
“Overall, it was a very challenging year for the trade in vegetable oils and fats.
“The Malaysian palm oil industry is facing numerous challenges arising from the build-up of domestic palm oil stocks, the United States-China trade tensions and the weakened ringgit against the US dollar. Collectively, this has caused the downtrend in the palm oil price,” Kok said.
To ensure sustainable production, Kok said the government was committed to implementing the Malaysian Sustainable Palm Oil (MSPO) certification that would become mandatory on Jan 1, 2020.
The certification will elevate the country’s palm oil industry to international standards and widen its market access in the wake of changing global consumer concern.
It would also mark a significant step towards aligning and branding the Malaysian palm oil to globally accepted sustainability practices.
Kok said the government has also launched the ‘Love My Palm Oil’ campaign this year as part of efforts to change the negative perception on Malaysian palm oil.
“Attempts to discredit palm oil will continue to crop up from time to time.
“We cannot afford to act alone to face all the challenges.Therefore, both Malaysia and Indonesia, are working together to address various issues and biased allegations related to the palm oil trade under the Council of Palm Oil Producing Countries,” she added. — Bernama

 

Kerajaan melalui Kementerian Industri Utama (MPI) sentiasa mengkaji pendekatan terbaik dalam melestarikan industri minyak sawit negara termasuk melalui pelaksanaan Program Biodiesel minyak sawit. Biodiesel berasaskan sawit adalah tenaga boleh baharu yang dihasilkan dari kelapa sawit yang dihasilkan secara mampan. Penggunaan 1 tan biodiesel berasaskan sawit dapat mengurangkan pelepasan 3 tan gas karbon dioksida di udara.  Malaysia mengorak langkah dalam penggunaan minyak B10 menjelang 2019 dan Pelancaran Program B10 Di Sektor Pengangkutan menandakan usaha berterusan kerajaan dalam penggunaan B10.

YAB Perdana Menteri menyempurnakan gimik pelancaran Biodiesel B10 di sektor pengangkutan bertempat di Dataran Putrajaya

Majlis Pelancaran Pelaksanaan Program B10 di Sektor Pengangkutan yang  disempurnakan YAB Tun Dr. Mahathir Mohamad, Perdana Menteri pada 11 Disember 2018 merupakan titik permulaan kepada penggunaan biodiesel B10 secara meluas di Malaysia.

YAB Tun Mahathir telah memandu sendiri kereta Peugeot model 508 yang berenjin diesel ke tapak pelancaran dari pejabat beliau di Perdana Putra.  Beliau turut merasmikan pengedaran biodiesel ke seluruh Malaysia secara simbolik dengan upacara pelepasan flag-off  5 buah lori tangki dari syarikat pembekal minyak dan gas seperti Petronas, Shell, Petron, BH Petrol dan Caltex.  Kenderaan-kenderaan yang menggunakan enjin diesel termasuk kenderaan berat seperti bas dan pacuan empat roda milik agensi-agensi kerajaan dan juga pihak swasta turut terlibat di upacara flag-off  tersebut.

Penggunaan biodiesel secara mandatori di Malaysia telah dimulakan pada tahun 2011 dengan B5 iaitu adunan 5% biodiesel sawit dengan 95% diesel petroleum bagi sektor pengangkutan. Kandungan Biodiesel telah ditingkatkan kepada 7% bermula November 2014 secara berperingkat. Sementara itu, pelaksanaan Program B10 bagi sektor pengangkutan bermula pada 1 Disember 2018 dan dilaksanakan secara mandatori pada 1 Februari 2019 di seluruh negara.

KUALA LUMPUR: All Kuala Lumpur City Hall (DBKL) diesel vehicles will use B10 biodiesel to promote a greener city and to encourage use of palm oil, says Federal Territories Minister Khalid Abdul Samad.
DBKL’s 813 vehicles will be using the biodiesel, which is a blend of 10% palm methyl ester and 90% petroleum.
“The use of the B10 diesel is in line with DBKL’s wish to achieve the goal of a ‘low carbon city’ by reducing the emission of black fumes from vehicles’ exhausts and to increase the air quality in Kuala Lumpur city,” Khalid said at the launch at Menara DBKL here.
“With this, we can also create new demand and markets for our palm oil,” he said, adding this would increase the price of palm oil.
He said the study, which lasted three-and-a-half years, went well with no signs of technical trouble.


 
Greener fuel: Khalid is all smiles as he fills up a GoKL bus with B10 biodiesel. Looking on are Kok (second from right) and Land Public Transport Commission chief operating officer Qamar Wan Noor (right).
Khalid also announced that DBKL would be taking over operations of the GoKL buses from the Transport Ministry starting next year.
He said the budget for the free GoKL bus service, which aims to ease “first-mile-last-mile” problems, would remain at RM12.2mil a year.
Starting next Feb 1, he said, a possible new bus route could be introduced either between Universiti LRT station-People’s Housing Pro¬ject (PPR) Sri Pantai or Tun Razak Terminal-Mindef.
Also present at the event were Primary Industries Minister Teresa Kok and Kuala Lumpur Mayor Datuk Nor Hisham Ahmad Dahlan.
Meanwhile, Khalid, who is also Parti Amanah Negara communications director, said the party had guidelines on whether to approve the membership of possible Umno defectors.
“It depends on how they perform (as independent MPs).
“Let them be independent first, and if they are finally accepted, they cannot hold any positions for a year,” he said.
