Are we ready to mitigate the formation of 3-MCPD and GE and ultimately meet the market requirements?

The reduction of 3-MCPD esters and glycidyl fatty acid esters or GEs is a high priority for the oil and fats industry. The European Union (EU) had enacted a regulation of 1 ppm for GEs. Now, the EU is proposing a regulation on the level of 2.5 ppm for 3-MCPD as a safe limit for palm oil. Are we ready to mitigate the formation of 3-MCPD and GE and to ultimately meet the market requirements?

CPOPC will be organizing “Forum on 3-MCPD and GE” on 7th February 2020 in Jakarta, Indonesia, to provide a platform for sharing of information and lesson-learned on works currently being undertaken to mitigate the formation of 3-MCPD and GE throughout the supply chain industries. Participants will have the opportunity to identify the most effective and cost-efficient technologies to further reduce 3-MCPD and GE levels in various stages of palm oil production from upstream, midstream and downstream. There will be valuable insights on various topics of discussion on the science, regulatory aspects, research & development on 3-MCPD and GE; and a business matching meeting with successful technology providers that participants can engage in a one-to-one session. Please join us at this Forum!
