INDUSTRY.co.id - Jakarta, PT Daimler Commercial Vehicles Indonesia (DCVI), the sole agent for the sale of Mercedes-Benz commercial vehicles in Indonesia, expressed its readiness to participate in implementing new regulations issued by the Indonesian government regarding mixing 20% ​​of biodiesel into regular fuel, or what is known as B20 policy.

By participating in implementing the B20 policy, DCVI participates in efforts to improve energy security and reduce emissions for better air quality.

Furthermore, amid the current increase in fuel prices, the use of biodiesel also has the potential to reduce the amount of imported fuel.

"Mercedes-Benz has a long history in Indonesia. In the commercial vehicle business line, our commitment is marked by the Mercedes-Benz 911 assembly, also known as Bagong Mercy. Our commitment is strengthened by participating in implementing the B20 policy on Mercedes-Benz trucks and buses, "said Markus Villinger, President Director and CEO of DCVI through his written statement in Jakarta (6/9/2018).

Mercedes-Benz truck and bus readiness for B20 policy also marks DCVI's commitment to business growth and customer satisfaction.

"Mercedes-Benz trucks and buses are manufactured to meet Euro 3 emission standard requirements. Therefore, DCVI confidently announces that Mercedes-Benz trucks and buses are ready to implement the government's new policy on fuel," Villinger concluded.

The implementation of B20 policy is expected to support the Indonesian government's agenda in reducing fuel and gas emissions financing.
