Diesel

Diesel

Diesel is produced from the fractional distillation of crude oil at the oil refineries. Diesel is used in various applications throughout many industries. These include automotive diesel engines, marine boats, industrial boilers, generator sets and other industrial applications.

Effective 1st September 2009, Malaysia introduced "EURO 2M diesel", where the sulphur content is at a maximum of 0.05%. This was an improvement from the maximum requirement of 0.3% previously. The reduction in sulphur content helps protect our equipments and also the environment. 

Based on the chart below, we can see the Sulphur content of different diesel grades.

Currently, Euro 2M diesel is the mandated diesel by the Malaysia Government. while Euro V diesel is optional.  Malaysia Government plans to mandate this product in year 2020.

Diesel sold at most of the Service Stations in Malaysia is called biodiesel as it is not pure diesel. Biodiesel in Malaysia for Euro 2M consist of an approximate mixture of 90% diesel and balance 10% palm oil base products, and is commonly known as B10. While Biodiesel in Malaysia for Euro 5 consist of an approximate mixture of 93% diesel and balance 7% palm oil base products.

The B7 programme for the industrial sector has been implemented starting July 1, 2019. Diesel for industrial uses is commonly stored in skid tanks. To store diesel at any site, a storage license is required by the government. Once the site gets approval from the local bomba, applications can be made through https://www.bless.gov.my/bless to the Ministry of Domestic Trade, Co-Operatives and Consumerism for approval. From a safety aspect, it is also a requirement that storage tanks are surrounded with a bund wall so that spills will be controlled and recovered. The capacity of the bund wall should be at least 110% volume of the largest storage tank.
