As is known, the European Union (EU) is applying the renewable energy directive (RED) II policy, which prohibits the use of biofuel, bioliquid and other raw materials that are considered to have a high risk of indirect change of land use.

Direct Land Use Change (ILUC) is a high risk -- including triggering the conversion of natural forests into farms and agricultural land -- this is considered to increase greenhouse gas emissions. Indonesian oil palm will be banned from entering the EU because it is considered to be a source of deforestation, estimated at 5 million hectares in the 2008-2016 period.
