Our March/April 2017 issue examines the palm oil potential of Colombia, the fourth largest global producer of the oil.

We provide an update on the biofuel technology providers in Austria and their latest research and development projects.

We take a look at emerging olive oil producers such as Australia, Croatia, Chile, Uruguay and Saudi Arabia.

And we focus on why an increasing demand for bio-based products is driving growth in the oleochemicals market worldwide, which is estimated to be worth US$20.03bn by 2020.

As always, our March/April issue features our regular usual mix of news, event listings and statistics.

Bonus distributions of this issue will be made at OFI India 2017, 19-20 May 2017, Mumbai, India and the 108th AOCS Annual Meeting, Florida USA, 30 April- 3 May 2017.
