The ‘Seminar Talk about B20 Biodiesel’, was successfully held with a good turnout in Senai, Johor on 16th November, 2019.
A recent talk on the B20 Biodiesel was jointly organised by the Johor Trucking Association and Greatocean Automobile Supply Sdn Bhd, the authorised distributor of Valvoline.
The talk, titled ‘Seminar Talk about B20 Biodiesel’, was successfully held with a good turnout in Senai, Johor on 16th November, 2019. Eighty participants from more than 70 entities attended the seminar, including diesel-based combustion engine/machine operators such as truck, bus and car owners; Original Equipment Manufacturer (OEM) engine/machine suppliers including Scania, Volvo and Hino; used truck/machine importers as well as genuine/OEM spare-part suppliers.
The main speaker was Foo Siew Mun and the content covered how B20 biodiesel would affect the combustion engine and relevant parts, preventive measures for existing engines and routine maintenance changes one needed when using this biodiesel, and what needed to be taken into consideration for future truck purchase, such as engine, spare-parts and machine for combustion engine users. He also helped the audience to explore the alternatives they have with the mandatory implementation of biodiesel in Malaysia.
Areas relevant to the OEM machine/engine suppliers discussed at the seminar included whether their existing engine design was suitable for the near future market requirement as well as the opportunity/risk that was in store for their existing customers. He also touched on topics such as whether existing parts were still relevant to market demand and what should the genuine/OEM parts distributors recommend to their customers in adapting to the changes following the use of this biodiesel.
Greatocean Automobile Supply, YonMing Group and European Auto & Services were the main sponsors for the seminar.
