Bio-diesel Developments

Biodiesel production from Coconut oil started in the early 2011 by a company called Biodiesel Group (Fiji) Limited however, the increasing cost of feedstock and the declining cost of regular diesel affected the viability of the company.

The Department of energy is currently exploring other non-edible feedstocks; biodiesel production technologies and incentives to improve the viability of biodiesel production. Lately a non profit organization is setting up a biofuel training centre at USP for piloting of biodiesel in collaboration with USP IAS. This initiative could be expanded into the Government owned maritime biofuel mills.
