ABSTRACT
The article reports on the environmental impact of the fires started by Indonesian farmers and palm oil plantation companies to clear land for planting palm for biodiesel production. Attractive export prospects aside, this is good news because it sets the world's second-largest palm oil producer on the way to the use of greener fuel, improving air pollution in Indonesia's cities. But for the country's neighbours, the expected jump in new palm oil plantations presents a dark side.
