Biofuel Advancements in Indonesia: Status and Progress


Indonesia, as a vast tropical archipelago abundant in resources, finds itself as a significant importer of crude oil in the energy sector. Recognizing this, and driven by the necessity for decarbonization, Indonesia has embarked on various efforts and programs to reduce its dependence on fossil fuels, particularly through the utilization of biofuels for transportation. Being the largest producer of palm oil in the world, Indonesia utilizes this resource to lead global biodiesel production for transportation fuel. However, the development of other biofuel types such as bioethanol and biogas hasn't been as extensive as biodiesel. This presentation will address various aspects related to biofuel development in Indonesia, encompassing policies, regulations, current status of market and technology, also its challenges. Additionally, research conducted in collaboration with Hiroshima University utilizing unconventional biomass, specifically macroalgae, will also be shared.
