Executive Order No. 827





WHEREAS, it is necessary at this time of imbalance between our supply and demand for middle distillate fuels to develop indigenous motor fuel substitutes;


WHEREAS, it has been found and successfully demonstrated that the use of coconut oil as diesel fuel extender is technically and economically feasible;


WHEREAS, the use of this indigenous and renewable source as diesel fuel blending stock will not only alleviate the fuel imbalance but also help absorb the country’s coconut oil surplus and thus buoy up the coconut industry and consequently protect the livelihood of our coconut farmers;


WHEREAS, the Cabinet Executive Committee has already approved for implementation a coco-diesel program which will use a blend of a maximum 5% coconut oil and 95% diesel fuel nationwide distribution and sale for automotive purposes;


WHEREAS, for the program to succeed, it is necessary to secure a continuous and stable source of supply of coconut oil;


WHEREAS, to make economically viable the use of coconut oil as a diesel fuel extender at the present price of diesel and coconut oil, it is necessary that coconut oil be exempt from the coconut oil levy and sales tax, as well as the specific tax and special fund impost applicable to diesel fuel.
