ABSTRACT

Crude Palm Oil (CPO) is the mainstay of Indonesian agricultural products which is the largest CPO producing country in the world. The high market share of Indonesian CPO exports reflects the high competitiveness of Indonesian CPO in the global market. The purpose of this study is to determine the competitiveness of Indonesian CPO, the concentration of the Indonesian CPO industry, and analyze the factors that are suspected to affect the competitiveness of the CPO industry in Indonesia. The data used in this study are secondary data with a five-digit ISIC (10432) using time series data for 2001-2020 and the analytical techniques used in this study include Revealed Competitive Advantage (RCA), Gini Coefficient, and Error Correction Model (ECM). The results showed that Indonesian CPO has high competitiveness in the international market, the Indonesian CPO industry is not concentrated, in the short term the variables that affect competitiveness are CPO prices, subsidized solar prices policy, and industrial concentrations, while in the long term the influential variables are biodiesel policy, subsidized diesel oil policy and industrial concentration

ABSTRACT

Despite this focus on pandemic-related supply chain disruptions, fewer empirical studies have sought to isolate short-term price impacts in food and nonfood agricultural commodity markets.1 Understanding the drivers of short-term commodity price impacts is critical to understanding future susceptibility to major market shocks and to informing policies related to shock mitigation. Declines in ethanol production reached an estimated 2 billion gallons lost from March to November 2020, leading to a corresponding decline of 700 million bushels of corn usage and a loss of billions of dollars of ethanol producer surplus (Renewable Fuels Association, 2020b;Schmitz, Moss, and Schmitz, 2020). Increases in corn-based ethanol production that started in 2005 have linked agricultural commodity prices and energy markets as US ethanol production increased rapidly from 3.9 billion gallons in 2005 to 13.3 billion by 2010 and 15.8 billion by 2019 (Chakravorty, Hubert, and Nøstbakken, 2009;Wright, 2011;Roberts and Schlenker, 2013;Asgari, Saghaian, and Reed, 2020;US Department of Agriculture, 2021). Given that over 90% of US ethanol is used in mixtures of E10 gasoline and the US market reached a 10% "blend wall" in 2016, any reduction in gasoline use will cause proportional decreases in ethanol use (US Energy Information Administrationa, 2020;US Department of Agriculture, 2021).

ABSTRACT

Valentina Peleckiene and her research team observed and analyzed how economic growth of EU countries is accompanied by growth of motorization rate and fatalities during the last decades in terms of inventory number of motor vehicles and accidents in road traffic. The study by Oleksandr Klymchuk et al. highlights the historical processes, current trends, and prospects for the production and consumption of biodiesel in the world;modern approaches to the formation, development, and support of biodiesel production in the European Union are outlined;the economic efficiency of biodiesel production in Ukraine from different types of raw materials (rapeseed, sunflower, soybean) is considered, and modern approaches to efficient biodiesel production in Ukraine and perspective directions of formation of raw material base for the increase of biodiesel production are offered. The analytical study of Tetiana Prylipko's team is examining the search and development of effective ways to reduce the proportion of grain in feed due to non-grain raw materials and partial or complete replacement of such high-value ingredients as animal proteins, fats, phosphatides, macro-and micronutrients, and vitamin-mineral premixes through the use of natural resources of the local raw material base. In the research by Pavlina Fuhelo et al., an evaluation model of the sufficiency of financial support for territorial communities of Ukraine is considered and a ranked series of territorial units is constructed;the problems of the financial support system for territorial communities due to the existence of post-conflict and temporarily occupied territories are identified, and directions for improving the financial provision of territorial communities are proposed and alternative sources of funds for the budgets of territorial communities are considered.

ABSTRACT

The conference was planned to be held on 24–26 September 2020, but it was postponed due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Since the pandemic continued to have a significant impact on the World, it was decided to go ahead with a virtual format of the conference, for the first time in its history. Recent developments and future prospects;Prof. Jean Michel Martin (University of Lyon, France), The supreme lubrication power of glycerol for green superlubricity;Univ-Prof Dr Carsten Gachot (Vienna University of Technology, Austria), On the in situ formation of transition metal disulphides in a lubricated tungsten nitride coating contact;Prof Andreas Almqvist (Luleå University of Technology, Sweden), Topological optimisation of slider bearing geometry. After the standard peer review process, 10 papers were accepted for publication in this special issue of Industrial Lubrication and Tribology.
