Oils & Fats International Issue
OFI November/December 2018
Our November/December 2018 issue looks at the advantages of hydrotreated vegetable oil (HVO) over traditional biodiesel and growing global demand and new production capacity for this fuel.
On the topic of oilseeds, we examine how canola farmers around the world are fighting the highly infectious clubroot disease. We also focus on how trade tensions between the USA and China could affect the promising future of US soyabeans.
OFI’s transport & logistics focus looks at how Pakistan’s growing edible oil demand will put pressure on its port infrastructure.
Our November/December issue reports on the latest news and developments around the world relating to testing and standards.
We examine the margarine and industrial fats sectors in Russia and Ukraine and the similar challenges they face.
And we write on how extrusion pressing offers a mechanical alternative to traditional soyabean processing.
