BioMaxx Systems Inc. Will Build Biodiesel Demonstration Plant in Asia
Let's just remember a few recent posts on those three countries. Thailand can't grow all of the palm oil it need to make biodiesel. In Indonesia, a lot of clearcutting is taking place and Malaysian exports of palm oil to the U.S. increased by 65 percent last year as consumers turned away from trans-fats as Palm oil production and prices soar on back of biodiesel. Considering that the, "demonstration plant will assist BioMaxx in the development of a product line of small scale bio-diesel production plants to be marketed in Asia. The small scale plants will be customizable to the specific feedstocks as dictated by our client requirements," and I'm guessing those clients will, at least in the near term, want to use palm oil, this might open the door to more problems than it solves. To say the least, the politics and environmental impact of palm oil biodiesel production is complicated.
