Palm Oil - The Sustainable 21st Century Oil download page

23-24 March 2009, London

Palm oil (PO) is the world’s most widely produced and traded vegetable oil. It is predominantly used for food, but increasingly also used for oleochemicals and more recently as a feedstock for biodiesel. Indonesia and Malaysia dominate production of palm oil and have done much to make the oil so important, but have also come under criticism for destruction of tropical rain forest. With world population projected to increase to over 9 billion by 2050, PO will become even more important for world food supplies.
