泰国探索区块链棕榈油贸易

2020-5-15 12:20

 

《曼谷邮报》的一篇文章说,泰国能源部正在研究将区块链用于棕榈油贸易。这样做的目的是减少中间商,使农民获得更高的利润。


泰国是全球第三大棕榈油生产国,但对全球产量的贡献仅为个位数。该国在2019年生产了300万吨的粗棕榈油。然而,泰国棕榈油行业正面临定价问题,农业部过去也曾遭遇农民的抗议。


人们对可持续生产的需求也在不断上升,因为棕榈种植园的建立摧毁了大片的热带雨林。


泰国能源部已命令能源部与泰国石油交易商合作开发区块链平台。它的目标是在下个月实施一项解决方案,为农民提供救济。


“政府正试图控制国内棕榈油价格和汽油混合燃料的内容提高到10% (B10)和20% (B20) 2019年4月来吸收剩余体积的毛棕榈油(CPO)和上面保持新鲜棕榈坚果的价格每公斤三泰铢,“说Sontirat Sontijirawong,能源部长。


卫生部还提到了2019冠状病毒病对棕榈油消费的负面影响,造成了过剩,从而降低了价格。问题似乎在于棕榈油生产和消费的管理,因为泰国大多数农民都是小农,缺乏创新生产的技术和资金支持。


马来西亚是全球最大的棕榈油生产国,目前正与BloomBloc合作,进行棕榈油供应链的区块链可追溯性试验。这里的重点是可持续性。

Thailand’s Energy Ministry is exploring using blockchain for palm oil trade, a Bangkok Post article said. The goal is cut down the middlemen so that farmers can realize higher profits. 

Thailand is the third-largest producer of palm oil globally but contributes only a single-digit percentage to global production. The country produced three million tonnes of crude palm oil in 2019. However, the Thai palm oil industry is facing issues with pricing, and the agriculture ministry has encountered protests from farmers in the past. 

There is also a rising demand for sustainable production, as palm plantations are set up by wiping out acres of rainforests. 

Thailand’s energy ministry has ordered the Department of Energy Business to work with Thai oil traders for a blockchain-based platform. It aims to implement a solution by next month to provide relief to farmers. 

“The government is trying to control domestic palm oil prices and raised the content of blended biofuel gasoline to 10% [B10] and 20% [B20] in April 2019 to absorb the surplus volume of crude palm oil [CPO] and keep the price of fresh palm nuts above three baht per kilogramme,” said Sontirat Sontijirawong, the Energy Minister. 

The ministry also cited the negative effect of COVID-19 on the consumption of palm oil, which has created a surplus, thus reducing prices. The issue seems to be the management of palm oil production and consumption, as most farmers in Thailand are smallholders and lack technical and monetary support to innovate production.

Malaysia, which is the top producer of palm oil globally, is working with BloomBloc on a blockchain traceability pilot for palm oil supply chains. The focus here is sustainability.  

Nestlé, as a member of OpenSC blockchain, is tracking the use of sustainable palm oil used in its products.
