Indonesia's WTO appeal fails to overturn fatty alcohols ruling

GENEVA, Sept 5 (Reuters) - Indonesia failed on Tuesday to overturn a ruling in a trade dispute with the European Union over trade in fatty alcohols.

The World Trade Organization’s appeals judges upheld a ruling from December 2016 which said the EU had been within its rights to impose anti-dumping duties on Indonesian fatty alcohols and rejected most of Indonesia’s complaint.

Fatty alcohols are made from kernel oil, a palm oil derivative, and mainly used in the production of detergents and surfactants, as well as in cosmetics, food and industrial solvents. (Reporting by Tom Miles; Editing by Hugh Lawson)
