Since 2016, based on the regulation of the Minister of Energy and Mineral Resources number 12/2015, the government has enacted a policy of mixing biodiesel into diesel oil by 20 %, also known as B20. It is applied to all sectors that use diesel oil. In 2020, based on that regulation, Indonesia will continue to implement B30. Indonesia will be the first nation in the world to implement B30, especially biodiesel based on palm oil. This study is to present the readiness of Indonesia to implement B30 by the installed capacity, the regulation, the reference of standard, and the availability of biodiesel laboratory. This study is based on literature studies, discussion, and biodiesel testing. The result of this study showed that the biodiesel installed capacity has enough to supply B30. The regulation has available as mandatory starting per 2020. The biodiesel testing showed compliance in the parameter of the revised standard. The biodiesel laboratory as a conformity assessment also has available to test the revision of biodiesel standard. It gives confidence for Indonesia to implement B30.
Key words: biodiesel standard / B30 regulation / biodiesel laboratory / biodiesel production capacity / palm oil blended biodiesel
