Meanwhile in 2020, Indonesia is in the process of boosting production and use of B30. The goal is to reduce import values oil in 2019.

The latest Jokowi said that Pertamina had succeeded in creating a catalyst for the manufacture of D100, namely diesel fuel which is 100 percent made from palm oil and is currently testing production at 2 oil refineries.

“This will absorb a minimum of 1 million tons of palm oil produced by farmers for a production capacity of 20,000 barrels per day,” he said.

Meanwhile, the downstreaming of other raw materials also continues on a large scale. Coal is processed into methanol and gas.

Several refineries were also built to process crude oil into finished oil, as well as to drive the petrochemical industry which supplies high value added downstream industries.

“We also use the same principle in developing other industrial areas, including the construction of the super economic corridor on the north coast of Java,” said Jokowi.
