State-owned Indonesian energy company Pertamina will launch a new gasoline product containing 5 percent ethanol in late June 2023, utilizing ethanol derived from domestic sugarcane. According to Presidential Regulation 40/2023, Indonesia aims to produce 1.2 billion liters of sugarcane ethanol by 2030. Implementation of an eventual E10 blending mandate nationwide would require an estimated 890 million liters of ethanol per year, equal to 17 percent of total U.S. ethanol exports in 2022.
