INDUSTRY.co.id - Jakarta - The Government mapped various obstacles in the implementation of B20 Biodiesel which began to be mandatory for use on 1 September 2018, one of which was distribution to certain islands.

"We see what the obstacles are, one of which has to transport to a particular island, you have to use a ship. Now, the procurement of the ship itself cannot be one or two days, there are up to 14 days," said ESDM Ministry Director General of Oil and Gas Djoko Siswanto in Jakarta , Thursday (09/13/2018)

Djoko conveyed this after attending a Coordination Meeting at the Coordinating Ministry for Economic Affairs Office, Jakarta.

In addition, continued Djoko, the shipment of B20 by the Biofuel Business Entity (BU BBN) which supplies FAME (fatty acid methyl esters) sourced from CPO (crude palm oil) to the Fuel Oil Terminal is based on a certain schedule.

"So we ask for the schedule. Tomorrow it must be reported to the Coordinating Minister for the Economy. Later, it can be seen on the schedule, whether there is a delay or how the delivery is disrupted," said Djoko.

Another thing is that, in Berau, the technique of mixing diesel with FAME is still done manually, ie the contents of the diesel truck will be 20 percent to be filled and then filled with FAME to be mixed and become B20 Biodiesel.

Later, Djoko will also identify the depot that has not made B20 sales throughout Indonesia and request an official explanation to be reported to the Coordinating Ministry for Economic Affairs.

"The reason must be officially reported. We also check that they are not selling yet, tomorrow everything must be reported," Djoko said.

According to him, the government will provide tolerance if the reasons and reports are proven.

However, if the reasons presented are not proven, the government will not hesitate to impose sanctions.

"We give tolerance if indeed it is proven. If it is not proven, we will give sanctions. So, there will be a team under the Coordinating Ministry for Economic Affairs that determines that it will be sanctioned or not," he concluded
