JAKARTA, Nov 30 (Reuters) – Indonesia, the world’s biggest
palm oil maker, produced 7.20 million kilolitres (KL) of
biodiesel made from palm oil in the January to October period,
an industry group said in a statement on Monday.
In the same period, the country consumed 7.08 million KL of
the fuel, the Indonesian Biodiesel Producers Association said,
and exported 16,331 KL.
Meanwhile, disruptions due to the coronavirus pandemic had
resulted in a delay in biodiesel projects and the group now
expects 3.4 million KL of additional capacity will be pushed
back to 2021.
