Palm methyl esters fall under the family of renewable diesel fuel that is also known as FAME (fatty acid methyl ester). Palm oil is a type of vegetable oil, which is converted to biodiesel through a chemical process known as transesterification using methanol as the catalyst to form palm methyl esters. Palm methyl ester (PME) is being used in diesel engines without any modification and can be also blended with conventional diesel fuel to produce PME-diesel blend fuels. Apart from its primary use as fuel, palm methyl esters are used in a wide range of applications including its use as solvents, lubricants, emulsifiers, hydraulic fluids and so on.
