Subscribe and don't miss an issue.

Our September/October 2019 issue looks at how increased EU demand for used cooking oil to produce biodiesel is leading to more imports of this feedstock from China, Indonesia and Indonesia, raising quality and traceability concerns.

On the topic of rendering, we report on how a larger supply of US rendered products is being utilised by the biodiesel and renewable fuel industries.

Focusing on Industry 4.0, we examine the different stages of industrial revolution the palm oil industry has gone through, and how Industry 4.0 can help in ensuring sustainability and efficiency in the continuing journey.

The September/October issue provides two global summaries of the latest projects, news and developments relating to instrumentation and plant, equipment and technology.

OFI’s regular mix of news, event listings and statistics also feature in this issue.
