Bio-fuel Technology R&D

The Fiji Department of Energy continues to explore emerging global biofuel technologies which could be more viable for Fiji scenario. This includes Green diesel (Hydro oxygenated vegetable) which directly converts vegetable oil into green diesel through reaction with hydrogen gas.

Other technologies that are being followed closely by the department include production of bio-oil from biomass or biodiesel from inedible feedstocks. This could potentially eliminate the environmental burden caused by Heavy Fuel Oil in the electricity sector.
