Record levels of palm oil in diesel as ‘burning food for fuel’ madness continues

The amount of palm oil used in biodiesel has risen to a record high, despite new EU rules saying it must be phased out. New data shows the amount rose to 4.5 million tonnes in 2019, an increase of 7%, which means European drivers burned 100 times more palm oil than is contained in the world’s supply of Oreo cookies. T&E says the ‘madness of burning food in cars’ must stop.
