Several dealers have advised that the Chinese government has imposed new pollution controls on the production of Ginger Oil.  Processors have changed their fuel from coal/biomass to gas.  As the spent Ginger cannot be used as animal feed, a means of disposal needs to be found.  These factors have contributed to the continuing rise in prices.
