"but the volume used to hypothetically produce polymer currency isn't really a useful platform to stand on, "

Assuming it's required in similar quantities to the now defunct "one cows worth of tallow", all they need to do is pop down the local supermarket and buy a few 1 gallon bottles.

It's not as if this will require a few oil tanker sized loads and a whole new plantation the size of Wales! I'd bet the average household gets through the required amount on an annual basis anyway since palm oil is in so many of our food products these days.
