2. Coco-Crude in Vanuatu. (Article now deleted from the Web - Dec. 2008)
February 2004 -
Coconuts have been widely harvested in tropical coastal areas. The principal product is copra, the dried flesh of the nut, from which oil is extracted for use in food products such as margarine as well as in cosmetics and soap. In recent years the demand for copra has been falling, and with it the price, leading to declining incomes in regions heavily dependent on copra production. However, on the islands of Vanuatu in the Pacific Ocean an entrepreneur, Tony Deamer, has succeeded in using coconut oil in fuel for motor vehicles. Potentially this enterprise could help to revitalise the market for copra and have wide-ranging environmental benefits as well.
