Toyota Motor Corporation and Nippon Oil are reported to have jointly developed a type of biodiesel derived from palm oil, which promises engine performance equal to that of mineral-based diesel. While biodiesel derived from feedstocks such as rape seed oil tend to be less energy-intensive than conventional diesel, Toyota and Nippon Oil have succeeded in extracting the oxygen from their fuel by injecting hydrogen at high pressure during the refining process. Nippon Oil expects to launch its new fuel commercially in the next four years, according to the Nihon Keizai Shimbun of 12 May.
