To underline Indonesia's commitment to fighting climate change, the Government has declared that biofuels will be used for vehicles entering the Nusa Dua Complex during the United Nations Framework on Climate Change Conference (UNFCCC) December 3-14, 2007.

Saying that bio-fuels are more eco-friendly and result in smaller carbon footprints, the Deputy Assistant of the Minister of the Environment for Bali and East Nusa Tenggara, R. Sudirman, announced that biofuels will be available at 7 gas stations surrounding the Nusa Dua Complex starting from one week before the UNFCC Conference.

According to Sudirman, delegate vehicles and vehicles used by those involved in the conference will be required to use biofuels. To give force to the measure, emission tests will be conducted throughout the conference. Exhaust emissions tests to be carried out at Nusa Dua that show a failure to use biofuels will cause the subject vehicle to be banned from entering the Nusa Dua complex. Sudirman warns motorists not to discount the seriousness of intent by the Government in introducing these measures, insisting that the rules will be strictly enforced.

Biofuel in Bali

Pertamina has announced that biofuel will soon be available as 12 gas stations in Bali in the area of Jalan Mahendratta, Jalan Gatot Subroto Barat and throughout the Nusa Dua Complex. Bio Pertamax will contain 15% biofuel and will be sold at the same price as Pertamax.
