Oils & Fats International Issue
Our March/April 2021 issue gives an update on the expansion of soyabean oil sales during the COVID-19 pandemic with biodiesel use growing in the USA and imports increasing in key markets.
In a special focus, we look at how Southeast Asia accounts for 80% of natural fatty acids and fatty alcohol production and is also a major consumer of oleochemicals.
We also report on China’s post-pandemic recovery and the outlook for the country’s edible oil sector.
In addition, the March/April 2021 issue includes a round-up of the latest plant and project developments around the world.
