F+L Week 2019 | Hitoshi Hayashi | Biofuel in ASEAN – JAMA stance
Recently many countries have expressed their interest in electric vehicles (EV), formulating policies to encourage their use. Of cause, EV is very important, but many of today’s vehicle population still use internal combustion engines (ICE) that run on liquid fuel.
Especially in ASEAN countries, biofuel like FAME (Fatty Acid Methyl Ester) is used as an environment friendly fuel, and demand for biofuel is increasing today.
Thus, OEMs should study how it should be used without causing any problems with the existing vehicle fleet.
The Japan Automobile Manufacturers Association (JAMA) has been studying and discussing with ASEAN-member countries about biofuel.
In this presentation, I will explain the results of the FAME study by JAMA and JAMA’s position on FAME biofuels.
