Oil palm is the most productive oil seed in the world. A single hectare of oil palm may yield 5,000 kilograms of crude oil, or nearly 6,000 liters of crude. Palm Oil an expeller-pressed food oil, obtained from fresh fruit bunches (FFB) of oil palm cultivated in plantations. Palm oil is the second largest edible oil and accounts for approximately 23 per cent of the world's fats and oil supply. Since 80 per cent of palm produced is used in food - its nutritional properties are of extreme importance. For comparison, soybeans and corn—crops often heralded as top biofuels sources—generate only 446 and 172 liters per hectare, respectively. Oil palm requires 7-11 times less land area than soybean, rapeseed and sunflower to produce the same amount of oil.
