Palm oil increasingly is used as feedstock for biodiesel production, although volumes remain much smaller than those for other major oil crops (soybean, rapeseed). The main producers of palm oil are Indonesia and Malaysia. This chapter discusses the production of palm oil in these countries, and for conciseness, we refer to them as the Far East. Normally, more countries in the region are included in this term, but they do not produce much palm oil.
