Indonesia's Jan-Oct biodiesel production at 7.2 mln KL - biofuel assoc

JAKARTA, Nov 30 (Reuters) - Indonesia, the world's biggest palm oil maker, produced 7.20 million kilolitres (KL) of biodiesel made from palm oil in the January to October period, an industry group said in a statement on Monday.

In the same period, the country consumed 7.08 million KL of the fuel, the Indonesian Biodiesel Producers Association said, and exported 16,331 KL.

Meanwhile, disruptions due to the coronavirus pandemic had resulted in a delay in biodiesel projects and the group now expects 3.4 million KL of additional capacity will be pushed back to 2021.
