Indonesia conducts first commercial flight using palm oil-blended jet fuel

Indonesia on Friday flew its first commercial flight using palm oil-blended jet fuel, as the world’s biggest producer of the commodity pushes for wider use of biofuels to cut fuel imports.

Operated by flag carrier Garuda Indonesia, the Boeing 737-800NG aircraft carried more than 100 passengers from the capital Jakarta to Surakarta city about 550 kilometres (342 miles) away, Garuda Indonesia CEO Irfan Setiaputra said.

“We will discuss further with Pertamina, Energy Ministry and other parties to ensure this fuel is commercially reasonable,” Irfan said during a ceremony, adding the plane was set to return to Jakarta later on Friday.

Garuda conducted several tests including a flight test on the new fuel earlier this month and an engine ground test in August.

According to Reuters, the palm-oil blended jet fuel is produced by Indonesian state energy firm PT Pertamina (PERTM.UL) at its Cilacap refinery, using hydroprocessed esters and fatty acid (HEFA) technology and is made of refined bleached deodorized palm kernel oil.

Pertamina has said the palm-based fuel emits less atmosphere warming greenhouse gases compared with fossil fuels, and palm oil producing countries have called for the edible oil to be included in feedstock for the production of sustainable aviation fuel (SAF), Reuters reports.

“In 2021, Pertamina successfully produced 2.0 SAF in its Cilacap unit using co-processing technology and was made of refined bleached deodorized palm kernel oil with production capacity 1,350 kilolitres per day,” said Alfian Nasution, a director at Pertamina.

Meanwhile, Harris Yahya, a director at the Energy Ministry, said the use of biofuel would lower the greenhouse effect.

The aviation industry, a major emitter of greenhouse gases, is looking for ways to cut its carbon footprint by using alternative fuels.

Experts say the industry will need 450 billion litres of SAF a year by 2050, if the fuel is to account for around 65% of the mitigation needed to achieve net-zero targets

This will never work in Nigeria because when the minister of aviation hears that palm oil is mostly found in the south east, they will kill the idea. We will wait till we find aviation fuel made from bitumen first grin

NB

For those of you quoting me to lament away their lives, what happened to coal, what happened to Onitsha river port that would have eased the cost of moving goods to the north through Onne?

Damn, what happened to railways in the east and the whole south south? Nigeria government was structured to work against every Igbo interest since 1966.

No apologies about what I said.

We yet have elected politicians with the political will to allow for a functional economy and industrialization.
More annoying are their stupidly gullible asslicking electorates.

Microwhy:

Who should we have elected out of all the major candidates?
Read for comprehension...my narrative is about gullible asslicking after election...once this is no longer a norm corrupt policies won't thrive...and eventually fellow nigerians that identify as politicians will take their elect-duties sacrosanct.
Why elect them and also patronize them in the face of incompetence/bad policies...that's the narrative.
Okechinwadike:
their personal interest first
Sadly.



Wittyness.

Country that is working with visionary leaders, not my dear Nigeria with visionless leaders, where the minds of average citizen have the potential of being stack corrupt.


The f*ckin leaders won't see this achievement to give example of na to come dey tell us how fuel ⛽ is the cheapest in Nigeria hence the need to remove subsidy.


Hypocritical leaders!!!

The same Indonesia that came to Nigeria to Take palm seedlings that year.

Nigeria, they have left you behind

Edit: my attention has been called to the fact that it's Malaysia that got palm seedlings from Nigeria.
Nigeria is not living up to expectation. Even the Malaysia has left us behind

But the minister of aviation is from the "south south" – which produces more palm oil than any region.
