Indonesia mulls to stop Palm Oil Exports to the EU, Looks at New Markets

Posted on : 11 Jun, 2018

In response to Europe’s proposed ban on use of biofuels made from palm oil by 2021, Indonesia is considering to stop trading palm oil to Europe altogether.
Indonesia has commissioned a study on stopping palm oil exports to the European Union – in order to eradicate the risks of export uncertainties once and for all. The study is expected to provide a report by end of this year.
Europe is Indonesia’s second largest palm oil export market, and Indonesia shipped its highest value of palm oil ever in 2017, contributing to the year’s $12 billion trade surplus. EU imports around 5 million tons of palm oil only for making Nutella each year.
The decision on whether the palm oil use ban will be imposed in all EU country members is expected to be made in 2019. If banned, it will be a huge trade blow for Indonesia and Malaysia – the two of the largest palm oil exporters to the EU.
Meanwhile, palm oil production has grown in Indonesia with land used for palm plantation rising from only 4 million hectares in 2000 to 11.9 million hectares in 2017 – as per data from the Central Statistics Agency (BPS). The numbers are expected to increase to 13 million hectares by 2020.
In addition, palm oil exports and its derivative products reached $23 billion, up 26 percent from $18 billion in the previous year. Indonesia is also exporting more palm oil to other regions – with export volume of palm oil to African countries jumping nearly 50 percent to 2.3 million tons in 2017 from 1.5 million, while exports to Middle Eastern countries increased by 7 percent to 2.1 million tons from 1.9 million, the report showed.
China is another big market for Indonesian and Malaysian palm oil, especially after the threats of declining edible oil supply following its trade wars with the US. China is looking elsewhere and plans to increase palm oil imports from Indonesia by up to 500,000 tons per year. Already in 2017, China bought 3.73 million tons of Indonesian CPO compared to 3.23 million tons in 2016.
How will palm oil production and exports shape the biofuels and oleochemicals market? Learn more at CMT’s 6th Oleochemicals Outlook on 5-6 September 2018 in Bali.

Indonesia looks at domestic market to absorb its biodiesel output

Posted on : 11 Jun, 2018

As the European Union plans to limit use of biodiesel fuel for transportation, Indonesia, the world’s largest palm oil producer, plans to expand biodiesel consumption in its domestic market.
Motorized vehicles in Indonesia are already mandated to use biodiesel. In a new development, the country’s Energy and Mineral Resources Ministry plans to now expand the use of biodiesel to 3.5 million kiloliters annually. For this it plans to encourage the country’s mining sector and state-owned railway operator KAI to start using biodiesel.
Once implemented, the mining sector is anticipated to guzzle as much as 90 percent of about 400,000 kiloliters of additional biodiesel use while KAI’s locomotives will consume the remaining 10 percent of the biodiesel. The biodiesel used in the mining industry is expected to be fuelling heavy equipment on mining sites. The government is already in talks with mining companies to implement the conversion to biodiesel.
The government is also conducting tests on the use of B5 or biodiesel 5 percent for train locomotives.
Train locomotives will be using B5 while the heavy equipment in mining will use B10 or 10 percent biodiesel.
Learn more about biodiesel markets and applications at CMT’s 6th Oleochemicals Outlook on 5-6 September 2018 in Bali.

KLK Oleo Starts new Reactor Specialty Ester Plant, R&D Centre in Selangor, Malaysia

Posted on : 10 May, 2018

Leading global oleochemical producer KLK Oleo – has started its fourth Reactor Specialty Ester Plant (EP4), plus research and development (R&D) centre in Klang, Selangor in Malaysia.

There is an increasing demand for specialty esters driving more investments in production as well as research and development. The newly commissioned plant will be producing ingredients for cosmetics and bio-lubricants.

The new R&D centre in Malaysia will serve as KLK Oleo's international research, development and technology arm to service and support its global oleochemical business. The R&D centre will specialise in organic synthesis, advanced analytical support, and creating high-value applications for oleochemical derivatives. Being a centralised R&D centre, it will be able to bring cutting-edge technology and innovation in the development of oleo-based products and solutions.

KLK Oleo's downstream journey began in 1991 with a fatty acid and glycerin plant in Rawang with a production of 45,000 tonnes per year before expanding to the current 3 million tonnes capacity worldwide with presence in Malaysia, China, Indonesia and Europe.
