Powering a sustainable future
Golden Agri-Resources (GAR) produces biofuel from responsibly sourced crude palm oil (CPO). We operate two biofuel plants – one near Jakarta and another in South Kalimantan that produce over 600,000 tonnes of high-quality biofuel per annum.
Both plants are strategically located for integrated and efficient operations. They are situated close to our downstream operations, ensuring a steady supply of raw materials as well as seamless integration of the feedstock to the production line. The plants are also located near a dedicated jetty, ensuring easy distribution of biofuel to domestic and international markets.
Our technical experts focus on stringent quality control in production processes and are supported by a dedicated biofuel laboratory, which results in fuel purity and consistent product quality.
What makes GAR’s palm-derived biofuel the better choice?
Sustainably produced palm oil plays a key role in biofuel and the fight against climate change. Here’s why?
Biofuel is made from renewable sources, unlike conventional diesel which is made from fossil fuels.
Biofuel releases only one-fourth the amount of carbon dioxide (a greenhouse gas) than conventional diesel releases, making it an environmentally friendly alternative to fossil fuels.
Oil palms have the highest yield, by far, compared to other sources of biofuel such as soybean and canola, making palm oil the most economical feedstock for biofuel.
In Indonesia, the government implemented the B30 biodiesel/biofuel mandate (30 percent palm oil, 70 percent diesel) in 2020, spiking demand for palm oil domestically. Many other countries have also recognised the benefits of biofuel and have followed suit.
Renewable, environmentally friendly, and cost-effective – GAR’s palm-derived biofuel, is truly the fuel of the future.
