Jakarta (VNA) - Indonesian biodiesel producers are gearing up to boost exports after the European Union (EU) removed anti-dumping duties on shipments from some producers in the Southeast Asian country.

After legal proceedings at the European Court of Justice, the EU last month removed duties on biodiesel imports for 13 Indonesian and Argentine producers that had been in place since 2013.

The move is set to be a boon for Indonesia, the world’s top supplier of palm oil-based biofuel.

Chairman of the Indonesia Biofuels Producer Association (APROBI), MP Tumanggor forecast Indonesia to ship around 432,000 tonnes of biodiesel to the EU this year, up from virtually nothing in 2017.-VNA
