FGV-MPOB B10 Usage Test Successful

FGV Holdings Berhad (FGV) in collaboration with the Malaysian Palm Oil Board (MPOB), has achieved impressive results in biodiesel testing using a 10% (B10) palm methyl ester (PME) mixture in its logistics, plant and plant operations.

The objective of the B10 usage test is a sign of support for government efforts to increase the current B7 biodiesel usage mandate to B10 and to prove scientifically that an increase of 3% does not negatively impact the performance and safety of transport and industrial machinery.
