Thailand´s B7 mandate comes online to boost palm oil consumption

In Thailand, the new B7 mandate comes into effect this week with palm oil demand seen increasing by 8,000 metric tons per month, or 84,000 tons per year, as a result. In the long term, hopes continue to be for blends to reach 10% and then 20%.The  Electricity Generating Authority of Thailand is also experimenting with palm oil blending, having undertaken 10% trials that showed no damage to the generators, but prices will be a main factor for uptake in the power sector.
