 China develops palm oil to biodiesel technology

2/2/07 Shanghai. (INTERFAX-CHINA) - China has developed technology to transform palm oil to biodiesel, according to state news agency Xinhua.
The technology  will  require  further  development and support from the industry  before  it  can be used commercially, Huang Fenghong, the main researcher  of  this  technology  from the Wuhan Oil Institution Chinese Academy of Agriculture Science told Interfax.
"The technology has been adopted by Cambodia, which has already set up a production   line,"  said  Huang.  He  added  China  hasn't  established production  lines  for  mass  production yet, but China has a production
line of 2000 metric tons for research use.
The development  will help support the domestic oil bearing crops sector which is under attach by cheap imports.
China import around 4 million metric tons of palm oil from eastern north countries each year.
