InfoSAWIT, BANDUNG – Head of Pusat Penelitian dan Pengembangan Teknologi Ketenagalistrikan, Energi Baru, Terbarukan dan Konservasi Energi (P3Tek KEBTKE), Sujatmiko said that the road test showed the consistent things so far.
The machine, the quality of lubricants, the fuel consumption in the palm oil biodiesel mixture to diesel up to 30 percent (B30) are consistent and have no significant difference if compared to the vehicle using B20. “Some parameters showed that the emission and opacity of the vehicles using B30 have better result,” he who is also as the coordinator of B30 road test, said.
He also mentioned that the road test was done to give technical recommendation about the mono glyceride, filter blocking, and the fuel condition when it is in cold weather. “The result of the road test would be complete,” he recently said in Bandung.
This is about to avoid the misusage when the consumers buy it which could spend more costs if using B30 and the lack of quality. “The road test involved two major things, they are, the vehicles and the fuel,” he said. (T2)
