Reviews the impact of mid-level biodiesel blends on materials and emissions in conventional diesel vehicles in the Indonesian context.

Following a similar move by Beijing, 27 cities in China implemented stringent new vehicle fuel standards in October 2017 as a step toward reducing air pollution in heavily populated areas. These cities put the China VI fuel requirements into effect about 15 months before the national deadline and applied the new fuel standard to non-road equipment ahead of the national schedule.

Ramping up HEFA+ deployment in aviation would likely create competition for feedstocks between aviation and renewable diesel in the road sector. It could also result in indirect land-use change from the increased use of food crops to create renewable diesel and HEFA+, thereby undermining the climate benefits of AJF deployment.
