New biodiesel dumping claim weighs on RI’s shoulders

As though adding insult to injury, American biodiesel producers have followed the European Union’s (EU) lead in accusing Indonesia of dumping practices, less than a week before the latter’s first meeting to clear its name with the WTO. Accumulative exports plunged by 96.5 percent to $14.7 million in 2015 before climbing to $29.8 million in 2016, data from the Trade Ministry show. Meanwhile, Indonesia’s annual biodiesel exports to the US surged by 117 percent in the 2014-2016 period to 350,176 tons of biodiesel a year, or 93.75 percent of Indonesia’s total biodiesel exports last year (THE JAKARTA POST)
