Abstract

We all use palm oil in our daily life. In fact, approximately half of the packaged products in supermarkets contain palm oil, and it is an important product for biofuel production.

South East Asia produces at least 80% of the world's palm oil. However, more than half of the area given over to this crop has occurred at the expense of native forest, including a loss of approximately three million hectares of forest in Indonesia alone.
