Philippines: Biodiesel Standards Under Consideration

  |   Attaché Report (GAIN)   |   RP2021-0030

The Philippines’ Department of Energy has issued an advisory on four Draft Philippine National Standard Quality Standards for biodiesel blends B3 and B4 with public comments open for submission to tcppa.oismd@doe.gov.ph by June 30, 2021. Separately, the current B2 blend has been evaluated to reduce GHG emissions 1.3 percent while an increased blend mandate would also contribute to a net economic gain for the Philippines. Meanwhile, the Philippines' National Climate Change Action Plan sets a goal of reaching B20 by 2030.
