August 4, 2015 |

In Thailand, the new B7 mandate comes into effect this week with palm oil demand seen increasing by 8,000 metric tons per month, or 84,000 tons per year, as a result. In the long term, hopes continue to be for blends to reach 10% and then 20%.The  Electricity Generating Authority of Thailand is also experimenting with palm oil blending, having undertaken 10% trials that showed no damage to the generators, but prices will be a main factor for uptake in the power sector.
