The Malaysian Palm Oil Board (MPOB) has been involved in palm biodiesel research and development since the 1980s. Various experiments and field trials have been conducted searching for a better, cleaner and renewable fuel either using crude palm oil, palm olein or palm methyl ester for the diesal engine. Among the important parameters evaluated during the study are the effects of biodiesel on vehicle performance and emission. To conduct these assessments, MPOB has equipped itself with the necessary testing equipment. With these facilities, MPOB is extending services for evaluating vehicle performance to the industry ans scientific community for research and development purposes.
