Ahead of the Game

JJ-Lurgi, a leading plant supplier in the vegetable and oils and fats industry across the region, celebrates a booming year.
The year 2011 has been very successful for Regional Business Unit JJ-Lurgi. Proven technology, high level of engineering designs, efficient plant operation, total commitment to the implementation of contracts as well as excellent after-sales services have made JJ-Lurgi a leading plant supplier in the vegetable oils and fats industry across ASEAN.
Following the re-structuring of palm oil taxes in Indonesia, there was a sharp increase of downstream investment and JJ-Lurgi has greatly benefited by receiving healthy orders, with a number of contracts still under discussion.
Since August 2011, the Indonesian government has raised export taxes drastically to boost refining capacity and downstream activities. Crude palm oil (CPO) export tax was set at 22.5 per cent and refined palm oil tax at 13 per cent.
Orders mainly came in from Indonesia, China and other ASEAN countries and JJ-Lurgi is proud to have acquired a range of new customers and investors.
To further expand their business territories, joint venture partner Lurgi Germany has asked JJ-Lurgi to participate in worldwide projects. These are promising prospects and first successes have recently been achieved when they won a refining project in Turkey.
