B20 biodesel is a blend of 20 percent biodiesel and 80 percent petroleum diesel.

Acting ESDM Minister Luhut Binsar Pandjaitan said the policy has lots of benefits. It will reduce diesel fuel consumption in the country.

"We want to reduce diesel fuel imports," said Luhut in Jakarta on Wednesday (10/12).

He added the policy will also help small palm oil farmers. The implementation of the policy will boost palm oil prices.

"The government is committed to clean energy," he concluded.
