The Kuala Lumpur City Hall (DBKL), an agency under the Ministry of Federal Territories has been involved in the National Biodiesel Programme since February 2009. The first collaboration on biodiesel fuel between the Malaysian Palm Oil Board (MPOB) and DBKL was to use B5 diesel for the whole DBKL diesel fleet. B5 is a blend of 5% palm biodiesel with 95% petroleum diesel. The successful implementation of the B5 project with DBKL has supported the government to implement B5 program nationwide in phases for transportation and other subsidised sectors beginning in 2011. To further increase the biodiesel blending ratio in diesel, the government had then upgraded B5 to B7 programme since January 2015. So far, no technical complaints were received.
