our consumption of palm oil is rocketing commitments from various governments to increase the amount of biofuels being sold are pushing this rise in demand, because they re sold seen as an attractive quick fix to reduce greenhouse gas emissions. India wanted 20% of its diesel to be biodiesel by 2012.
