The European Union (EU) imposes import duties on subsidized bio diesel from Indonesia to create more competition for EU producers, authorities said yesterday.

The European Commission imposes a temporary duty of between eight and 18 per cent, but warns it will impose permanent duty, by the end of the year.

“The commission’s investigation found that Indonesian bio diesel producers received grant benefits, tax benefits and access to raw materials at market prices.

“It poses a threat of economic damage to EU producers,” the commission said.

He said investigations focused on possible subsidies for bio diesel production either involving palm oil or other rare-used raw materials.

The EU biodiesel market is worth about nine billion euros a year with imports from Indonesia amounting to 400 million euros.

Palm oil is the most widely used vegetable oil in the world and is an important ingredient in a wide range of products from food to cosmetics.
