The AMEM and AEBF events themselves are the highest annual meeting event for the Minister of Energy and Mineral Resources in ASEAN as a means for members to share experiences, policies, and initiatives to encourage the use of clean and/or renewable energy and promote sustainability and connectivity in the energy sector in the ASEAN region.
The ASEAN Energy Award is the highest award at the Southeast Asian level to encourage and realize appreciation for greater private sector participation and interest in energy development in the ASEAN region in partnership with the public sector.
The ASEAN Energy Award consists of three categories namely Coal Award, Energy Efficiency Award, and Renewable Energy Award.
Specifically the ASEAN Renewable Energy Award, is divided into 5 categories, namely Off Grid, On Grid, Combined Heat and Power, Biofuel, and Special Submission.
PT KPI represented Indonesia in the Biofuel category, by bringing up the topic of Transitioning Indonesia’s Energy into Greener Fuel “Pertamina Renewable Diesel/HVO”, a product that KPI has been developing for a long time through a series of internal trials and culminating with a revamp of its plant at its Cilacap Refinery on Central Java.
After the revamp KPI is able to produce 2,500 bpd of renewable diesel at its Cilacap Refinery.
Certified technical and sustainability credentials
According to the company, its renewable diesel has many advantages compared to conventional biodiesel (FAME/B-100) and meets the specifications of the Director General of New and Renewable Energy Decree 95.K/EK.05/DJE/2022 and SNI 8968:2021, including not containing oxygen, cetane number > 70, sulphur < 5 ppm (EURO V), excellent storage stability, and a drop-in fossil diesel fuel replacement without the need for modifications to storage/transportation facilities and diesel engine internals.
The advanced biofuel has received international recognition as an environmentally friendly product through International Sustainability Carbon Certification (ISCC) with a greenhouse gas (GHG) of up to 70 percent less compared to conventional fossil diesel on a life cycle assessment.
Taufik Aditiyawarman, Director of PT KPI revealed that the company has paid special attention to the development of eco-friendly products made from biofeedstock.
The HVO that has been developed and produced at the Cilacap Refinery has a quality that meets the specifications set by the Director General of EBTKE-Ministry of Energy and Mineral Resources and has obtained ISCC international environmental friendly certification, explained Taufik Aditiyawarman.
With this success and the Biofuel Development Award, KPI continues to be committed to increasing commercialization and in parallel will increase Pertamina’s Renewable Diesel production capacity with the Green Refinery Project at the Cilacap Refinery and Plaju Refinery.
PT KPI is also registered with the United Nations Global Compact (UNGC) and is committed to the Ten Principles of UNGC in its operational strategy as part of implementing environmental, social, and governance (ESG) aspects.
