Status of and potential for utilizing coconut oil (CNO) in power Generation and Industrial Use in Pacific Island countries

The main objective of this work is to assess the potential of coconut oil (CNO) as a substitute for diesel in CI engines in the Pacific island countries of Papua New Guinea, Fiji and Solomon islands. This report describes the present status of copra and CNO production, use of distillate in electricity generation in the 3 countries. The advancements made to date in adapting CNO for various applications and viability of CNO as a substitute fuel in diesel electricity generators is studied. An indication of GHG reduction with CNO usage is also presented.
