NGO applauds Norway for cutting palm oil biodiesel consumption 70% in 2018

May 13, 2019 |

In Norway, the country’s consumption of palm oil biodiesel saw a 70 percent drop from 2017 to 2018. “A big win for rainforests and the climate. Now the rest of Europe must follow suit”, says Rainforest Foundation Norway. In 2017, Norway consumed 317 million liters of biodiesel based on palm oil, corresponding to around 10 percent of the total diesel consumption. In 2018, the number was 93 million liters – a reduction of 224 million liters, according to numbers released last week by the Norwegian Environment Agency.
