More palm oil and rapeseed oil in our tanks than on our plates

July 2, 2020

In the last 10 years the EU has seen an increase in the use of vegetable oil for energy production - mostly biodiesel.

2019 was an all-time high for vegetable oil biodiesel production and consumption, and for palm oil biodiesel in particular. Other trends are confirmed as well, such as the increase on soy oil biodiesel production and consumption as well as used cooking oil (UCO) biodiesel.
