Indonesian biodiesel ban seen lasting only a month

April 27, 2022 |

In Indonesia, Reuters reports the controversial ban on biodiesel aimed at securing sufficient palm oil supplies for domestic food consumption is now only expected to last a month due to the country’s lack of storage capacity for more than that. Crude palm oil will not be affected by the ban, but just refined, bleached and deodorized (RBD) palm olein as of April. If refined palm oil supplies become scarce, however, the government has said it will ban its export as well. The ban on RBD is set to remain in place until prices drop to 97 cents per liter.
