France to Restrict Use of Palm Oil in Biofuels: Minister

Submitted by on July 7, 2017 – 2:29 pmNo Comment

by Sybille de La Hamaide (Reuters)  France will take steps to restrict the use of palm oil in producing biofuels in order to reduce deforestation in the countries of origin, French Environment Minister Nicolas Hulot said on Thursday.

France has opposed other uses of palm oil in the past. Several bills have been presented to parliament since 2012 proposing a special tax on its use in food, citing environmental damage caused by plantations.

Hulot also criticized the import of some protein-rich products used in animal feed, saying he wanted to stop French livestock becoming reliant on products from Brazil that were produced in ways that damaged the Amazon rainforest.

Hulot did not name the products, but soybeans are a protein-rich crop from Brazil often used in animal feed in France.

Avril, Europe’s largest biodiesel producer, welcomed Hulot’s comments. The company uses French rapeseed as its main feedstock for biodiesel, in a process that makes animal feed as co-product known as rapemeal.  READ MORE and MORE (EurActiv)
