Indonesia successfully develops aviation fuel using palm oil

On April 2, Indonesian Energy Minister Ignasius Jonan announced in Jakarta that Indonesia currently has the technology to process palm oil into aircraft fuel, and it is environmentally friendly or green aircraft fuel. He said: “We are likely to produce this green aircraft fuel in the near future.”

As is well known, there are two main types of fuel for aircraft, namely aviation gasoline and aviation kerosene. A piston-type aero engine or a propeller-equipped engine that relies on a propeller to push a small aircraft to fly, requires a higher boiling fuel, but does not require much power, and generally uses aviation gasoline; Large civil aviation aircraft do not need high-boiling fuel, but they need very strong thrust. Basically, they use aviation kerosene. Zoran pointed out that Indonesia has mastered the refining of palm oil into environmentally friendly green diesel (diesel with very low carbon dioxide emission rate). Made in Indonesia, the D100 environmentally friendly diesel has an octane rating of 70 to 80, which is much higher than the octane number 48 of the widely used B20 (mixed 20% palm oil biodiesel) and is also higher than North Tammy. Nazionale’s Dexlite diesel octane 52 and Dex CN56 have higher boiling points.

He said: “The D100 environmentally friendly diesel we have developed has many of the same properties as the aviation kerosene used in many large civil aircrafts, including the octane content and the low boiling point. Based on these characteristics, the aircraft can also Save fuel.” “If our civil aircraft can use this D100 environmentally friendly diesel, it can also significantly reduce the price of air tickets. Our future ticket prices will be very low.”
