Indonesian palm oil industry will have high competitiveness if there is a balance and sustainability of the industrial structure between the upstream-midstream-downstream will be achieved because the maximum added value and stability of the industry.  Existing conditions of the use of technology, policy evaluation and technology utilization program in the processed oil palm industry needs to be mapped in order to increase the competitiveness and sustainability of the Indonesian oil palm industry. The purpose of this study is to support the improvement of the competitiveness and sustainability of the palm oil industry in Indonesia through the use of mapping technology on a national palm oil industry, especially in upstream and midstream industry.  Primary data is obtained from the result of field survey through interviews, observations, questionnaires and Focus Group Discussions (FGD). While secondary data is obtained from relevant institutions at the Central, Provincial and Regency/Municipality levels.  Gaps technology used on the Indonesia palm oil industry today, compared with ideal conditions that have developed in the industry done. Gap analysis was carried out to the five standard benchmarks namely processing technology, energy, environment, human resources, financing, and research. Results of the analysis shows that the type of technology used is still dominant with 'semi- mechanical technology'.  In order to develop the use of technology in the palm oil industry will require improvements in aspects of Technology and Environmental Management System, Product Development and Technology Cooking Oils (Indonesian Branded). Some of the action plan is to be implemented include continuous sterilizer, gasification, methane capture, recovery tanks, recovery b-carotene, ISPO Implementation, vitamin A fortification, mandatory SNI for cooking oils and Indonesian Branding.
