INDUSTRY.co.id - Jakarta - PT Pertamina (Persero) confirmed that the price of the 20 percent biodiesel fuel mixture or B20 does not change from the previous price or the same.

"The price for B20 is the same, even the benefits actually increase, besides saving is also more environmentally friendly," said PT Pertamina President Director Nicke Widyawati at SPBU Kuningan, Jakarta, Monday (3/9/2018)

SHhe also reminded the public not to worry about the biodiesel mixture, because it will not affect the vehicle's performance.

PT Pertamina (Persero) is ready to distribute 20 percent biodiesel fuel (B20) to end users through 112 fuel oil terminals (TBBM).

Nicke Widyawati also said that the readiness was a form of the implementation of the mandatory B20 policy which was implemented from 1 September.

"To encourage an increase in the number of users of biodiesel fuel that is environmentally friendly, we are ready and all Pertamina's facilities are 100 percent ready to mix and distribute biodiesel as a mandatory B20 policy implementation," Nicke said.

Nicke explained that of the 60 BBM Terminals that have distributed B20, Pertamina recorded the highest number of TBBM with distribution such as TBBM Jakarta Group, TBBM Kotabaru Group, TBBM Surabaya and TBBM Balikpapan.

Previously to the media, Coordinating Minister for Economic Affairs Darmin Nasution said that starting September 1, 2018, there would be no more B0 products on the market, and the whole would change to B20.

B0 products will only be for Pertadex or Diesel Premium. Some exceptions can be applied especially to Power Plants that use aero derivative turbines, the main weapon system tools (defense equipment). Against these exceptions, B0 is equivalent to Pertadex.

"If the BBM Business Entity does not mix, and the BBN Business Entity cannot supply FAME (Fatty Acid Methyl Ester) to BU BBM, it will be subject to a heavy fine, which is IDR 6,000 per liter," Darmin said.
