Almasdi Syahza, Brilliant Asmit

The development of palm oil plantations results in land conversion, posing potential erosion. In anticipating environmental damage, the Government of Indonesia imposes the Indonesian Sustainable Palm Oil (ISPO) policy. The results of the ISPO policy show that Indonesian crude palm oil products are environmentally friendly. This research is one of few studies that investigate the development of the palm oil sector and future challenge in Riau Province, Indonesia. Riau Province still needs 13 units of palm oil mills with a capacity of 60 tons per hour. Find strategies to regulate palm oil farming institutions and derivative products to enhance growth and economic development in the region and find production centers and development areas for palm oil local industries in potential regions.
