Indonesia's Pertamina expands trials of 100% palm oil biodiesel

State oil company is also testing production of green jet fuel

JAKARTA -- Indonesian state oil and gas company Pertamina said on Friday it has begun a second round of test production for a biodiesel made entirely from palm oil at its largest refinery in Central Java Province.

The test run for Green Diesel D100 kicked off at the Cilacap refinery on Jan. 9 and is scheduled to wrap up on Jan. 16. It follows a similar test in July. Pertamina is also continuing production trials for its "green avtur" jet fuel made of palm oil, which began in late December.
