ABSTRACT
The article reports on the plan by the Japanese Agency for Natural Resources & Energy to conduct a study that will examine whether biodiesel blends could exceed current limits. The agency will request a budget of ¥270 million ($2.28 million) for the investigation, which is expected to cover fuel mixture properties, stability, emissions and durability. It will commission the Japan Petroleum Energy Center and petrochemical companies to test biodiesel blends of more than 5%.
