ESTIMATION OF GREENHOUSE GAS EMISSIONS FOR PALM OIL BIODIESEL PRODUCTION: A REVIEW AND CASE STUDY WITHIN THE COUNCIL DIRECTIVES 2009/28/EC OF THE EUROPEAN PARLIAMENT
Mathews J Ardiyanto A

Abstract
The paper focuses on land cultivated with oil palm prior to 1st January 2008 and the production pathways of biofuel or bio liquid, based on current production practices. The rationale and guideline for the calculation of greenhouse gas emission given in this paper may benefit oil palm growers who planted oil palm prior to 1st January 2008. This could assist in the subsequent sale of palm oil to the European market. A case study carried out from the supplying estate, palm oil milling and effluent treatment under open pond system as well as refining; up to the biofuel production stage indicates that the GHG saving in palm oil biofuel for transportation is 43.95%. With methane capture and flaring, the GHG savings can increase to 66.95%.
