Indonesian flag carrier PT Garuda Indonesia (Persero) is mulling the usage of bio-fuel for all of its aircrafts starting 2015.
Garuda airline would need 10 million liters of renewable fuel in 2015 in mixture with other aviation fuel, according to news agency Antara.
Garuda Indonesia operational director Capt. Novianto Herupratomo said, "It is estimated that this amount of fuel is sufficient enough to meet the fuel needs of a single aircraft for a year."
"But it is only if the plan is aided by a sufficient supply of biofuel."
Garuda stated that it hopes to secure a bio-fuel producer to manufacture the fuel at reasonable price.
Indonesian Transportation Ministry, meanwhile, claimed that all the airlines in the country would commence the usage of bio-fuel from 2016.
Deputy Transport Minister Bambang Susantono however remarked: "The fuel will not be pure bio-fuel. It will be a mixture."
